Brewers News and Notes

What do the Brewers fans think about this year’s team? While getting an exact feel on the pulse of the fans is impossible, there’s ways to get an idea of it. One of those is the tracking poll that has been ongoing in the FanPosts this season. Here are a few of the things it has shown us this season. Approval on GM David Stearns is near absolute now, though confidence in manager Craig Counsell has been falling a little bit. The overall thought on how many games the Brewers could win is higher, and the vast majority of fans now give the Brewers at least a 10% chance to make the playoffs. There’s much more you can find out in the poll, so check out that link to see it.

In the meantime, if you have something you want to talk about, the FanPosts are available for you to use. Everyone has access to them, just start a post, write about something that interests you, and publish it. You can get feedback from the community, as well as start some potentially interesting discussions. Make sure to check it out.
