Poll: Brewers right on Herrera, Wooten, wrong on Francisco

Lance Iversen-USA TODAY Sports

The final cuts of spring weren't all easy decisions.

This week's Brew Crew Ball Tracking Poll was open from Monday at noon through the day Tuesday, and received 312 responses. Here are some notable results:

  • 55% of voters said they do not approve of the Brewers' decision to keep Lyle Overbay and Mark Reynolds over Juan Francisco.
  • 65% feel they made the correct decision, however, by keeping Jeff Bianchi over Elian Herrera.
  • 38% feel the Brewers made the correct decision by sending down Rob Wooten as one of four candidates for the final bullpen spot, but 34% would've preferred Zach Duke be the odd man out.
  • Doug Melvin's approval rating is at 70% this week, down 11% from last week.

Full results are below.
