Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Mets fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

Although the Mets’ season has come to an end, Mets fans are feeling pretty good about the team judging by this week’s FanPulse poll results. Asked about their confidence in the direction of the team, 75 percent of respondents said they were confident. That’s one of the higher marks of the entire season—right up there with the percentages from very early in the season and the Mets’ spectacular mid-summer stretch of baseball. The fact that Dominic Smith hit a walk-off home run in dramatic fashion to end the Mets’ regular season probably didn’t hurt.

That optimistic note to end the season didn’t change things much for Mickey Callaway, though, as just 11 percent of Mets fans who took part in the poll said they approved of his work as manager.

And across all of baseball, fans were asked if they liked the one-game format for the Wild Card games, and 55 percent of fans said yes.
