BCB Tracking Poll Shows Voter Approval For Handling Of Closer Role, But Not Zack Greinke

New, 1 comment

This week's poll was open from Tuesday at noon through Thursday and received 272 responses. Here are some notable results:

  • Despite the fact that the poll opened before the change was announced, a plurality of voters (48%) wanted Francisco Rodriguez moved into the closer role. 29%, however, think the Brewers shouldn't have a designated closer.
  • Just 33% of voters approve of the decision to have Zack Greinke skip a start, assuming he's not injured.
  • Voters are split on what to do with Greinke: 48% think the Brewers should offer him a five year/$100 million contract or more, but 42% think they should trade him.
  • Ron Roenicke's approval rating has fallen to a season-low 47%.
  • We're now up to 63% of fans who think this Brewer team cannot make the playoffs.
