Vast Majority Think Corey Hart Should Open 2012 On The DL If He's Not 100%, According To Poll

This week's poll was open from Tuesday at noon through Wednesday, and received 271 responses. Here are some notable results:

  • If Corey Hart is not at full strength when the Brewers open the season on April 6, just 3% of voters think the Brewers should get him back in the lineup before he's 100%. 95% would rather have him open the season on the DL.
  • A plurality of voters (47%) think Logan Schafer should make the roster if Hart goes on the DL.
  • 96% of voters approve of Jonathan Lucroy's new contract extension.
  • Assuming Shaun Marcum is limited to 75-85 pitches in his first start, 51% of voters would still choose to start him instead of Marco Estrada.
