In the latest edition of our FanPulse polling, which accepted votes on Monday and Tuesday last week, Mets fans hit new lows in confidence in the direction of the team and in their approval of Mickey Callaway’s job as manager. It’ll be interesting to see how much the past week has changed those perceptions, but just 13 percent of respondents said they were confident in the direction of the team in this poll, while only 10 percent said they approved of Callaway’s performance.
Since then, the Mets have won five out of their past six games, completing a four-game sweep of the Nationals before splitting the first two games of their series against the Tigers this weekend. What they do in the series finale this afternoon and in Los Angeles figures to have an effect on just how much those percentages might improve in the next edition.
On top of those questions, Mets fans were asked whether or not they trust this front office to make a good draft pick, and, well, they don’t.
On the national level, fans were asked whether they’d prefer their team draft high school players with higher ceilings or college players who are closer to the majors. Unsurprisingly, the latter won that vote.
