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.

As the Mets’ season is about to come to an end, fans who too part in the FanPulse poll this week seemed to shift their attention to the future when asked about confidence in the direction of the team. Despite the fact that the Mets were facing imminent elimination, 62 percent of respondents said they were confident in the direction of the team, up from 38 percent last week.

On the managerial side, though, just 10 percent of fans said they approve of Mickey Callway’s performance as manager of the team. His tenure in that position could very well come to an end as soon as Sunday afternoon, and he’s given some quotes over the past few days about his hopes to be the person who manages the team in 2020. If the results of these polls were to determine his future, he wouldn’t stand a chance. There were just two weeks in the majority of respondents said they approved of his work: the first and second weeks of the season.

On the national level, fans were asked if season-ending injuries should affect the MVP chances of players like Mike Trout and Christian Yelich, and a majority said no.
