Poll: "Anyone but Yuni" is still our favorite first baseman

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Beyond that, though, we're undecided about who should start in our weekly poll.

This week's Brew Crew Ball Tracking Poll was open from noon Tuesday through the day Wednesday, and received 129 responses. Here are some notable results:

  • 34% of voters listed Sean Halton as their favorite candidate to serve as the Brewers' primary first baseman at this point, while 30% chose Juan Francisco and 23% selected Hunter Morris. The only clear choice was "not Yuni," as Yuniesky Betancourt received 2% of the vote and finished behind "Undecided" and "Someone else."
  • 52% of voters think the Brewers' current roster expansion (from 25 to 30) is just right, while 37% think more players should be called up.
  • 72% of voters approve of the John Axford/Michael Blazek trade.

The full results are below.
