Poll: Some voters don't believe, wanted more from Braun

New, comments

This week's Brew Crew Ball Tracking Poll has a look at voters' reaction to Ryan Braun's statement last week.

Jonathan Ferrey

This poll was open from noon Monday through Tuesday, and received 192 responses. Here are some notable results:

  • When asked for their thoughts on Ryan Braun's statement from last week, 38% said it "was ok, but I wanted more," as compared to 33% that said it was "good and everything it needed to be."
  • 44% of voters said they don't believe Braun only used banned substances in 2011 to recover from nagging injuries. 21% more were undecided on that question.
  • 66% of voters said the Brewers should be looking for opportunities to rest Jean Segura down the stretch.
  • 38% of voters said they want the Brewers to move Khris Davis to another position where he can play every day in 2014. The second most popular option was moving Ryan Braun to another position so Davis can play left field. That choice received 29% of all votes.

The full results are below.
