New, 18 comments

This week's poll was open from Monday afternoon through Tuesday, and received 180 responses. Here are some notable results:

  • A near majority (49%) of voters think the Brewers should non-tender or trade players this offseason to free up payroll space. 40% think they should not.
  • Kameron Loe (44%), Casey McGehee (39%) and Manny Parra (38%) were the most popular choices to be non-tendered, but none received a majority of votes.
  • Meanwhile, voters strongly opposed non-tendering Shaun Marcum (7%), Nyjer Morgan (10%) and Carlos Gomez (13%).

Follow the jump for the full results.

Assuming the Brewers' payroll budget remains around $90 million, they currently have slightly more than $10 million to spend to fill first base, shortstop, two bench spots and three bullpen vacancies. How should they proceed?
