After hitting a season-low 25 percent last week, Mets fans polled in this week’s edition of FanPulse expressed a higher level of confidence in the direction of the team, as 44 percent said they were confident. Had the poll been taken after today’s loss against the Nationals, which saw Michael Conforto suffer a concussion and Jeff McNeil leave with an injury, there’s a good chance that number wouldn’t have gone up so much.
Mickey Callaway’s approval rating in the poll also improved this week, though he merely went from 21 percent last week to 25 percent this week.
On the national level, voters across the network were asked whether or not baseball games are too long, and unsurprisingly, 74.4 percent said that they are not. Whether or not that’s reflective of the opinions of the larger sports-watching populace is debatable, but clearly those who are tuned in to baseball on a regular basis don’t really see length of game as the problem that Major League Baseball does.
