Poll: Voters split on first base, bullpen

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

This indecisiveness simply will not stand.

This week's Brew Crew Ball Tracking Poll was open from noon Monday through the day Tuesday and received 230 responses. Here are some notable results:

  • Narrowing the field from six candidates to three didn't help voters pick a primary first baseman. 39% prefer Mark Reynolds while 32% like Juan Francisco and 21% remain undecided.
  • Given five candidates for one bullpen spot, 33% of voters chose Tyler Thornburg and 31% took Alfredo Figaro over a group that included Zach Duke, Donovan Hand and Rob Wooten.
  • 92% of voters said they're not concerned by Jean Segura's lack of power this spring. The poll was posted before his triple on Monday but many fans presumably voted after that.

The full results are below.
