Confidence in Ken Macha and Doug Melvin continues to fall in this week's BCB Tracking Poll

New, 7 comments

This week's poll ran from noon Monday to noon Tuesday, with 264 readers voting. Here are the most notable results.

  • Ken Macha's disapproval rating, which was at 14% before the season, climbed for the third straight week and is now at 62%, with just 15% approval.
  • Doug Melvin's approval rating continues to drop. He was at 87% approval on Opening Day, and has dropped in every poll since, to 74% two weeks ago, 69% last week and 57% this week.
  • Getting Jeff Suppan out of the rotation was a popular decision, but most voters think his replacement was the wrong choice: 54% of voters think Manny Parra should make today's start, followed by 43% for Chris Narveson and 1% for Jeff Suppan.
