Fanpulse: MLB purposely manipulating balls

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

When surveyed about whether the MLB is purposely juicing the balls, 68% of fans across the country said yes. Of course, Rob Manfred claims they’re just better at making them...or centering the pill...or whatever. Feel free to roll your eyes.

Do you approve of the job Andy Green is doing?

Yes 55%

No 45%

Green’s approval rating has been up and down all year. I don’t believe Padre fans will be happy unless he’s gone next year. The jury is out, but there are indicators that ownership is not pleased with the state of affairs.

Are you confident in the overall direction of the Padres?

Yes 86%

No 14%

No real change here. Fans still feel good about the direction of the team. Even though the Franmil Reyes trade stung, it’s obvious fans are pleased with the window of contention that’s been created.
