Although we missed last week’s results here, not all that much has changed since the last time we posted the results of a FanPulse poll. Just 12 percent of fans who took part in the poll this week said they were confident in the direction of the team, and that matched last week’s poll for the lowest mark of the season.
And when asked about their approval of Mickey Callaway’s performance as manager, just 3 percent of respondents said they approved. That was the lowest approval rating for a manager anywhere in Major League Baseball, and it wasn’t even close. Across all of baseball this season, no manager has even gotten down to single digits until Callaway did it this week, and it’s a bit surprising that he was able to garner any votes of approval at all.
On the national level, fans were asked about stadium financing, and the vast majority said teams should pay for new stadiums—and that they wouldn’t change that opinion if it were their own team trying to build one.
