Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Dodgers fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.
An overwhelming majority of respondents are pleased with the job skipper Dave Roberts is doing, but the results saw a seven percentage point decline from last week.
The FanPulse poll was sent out after the Monday night loss to the Angels, when the Dodgers bullpen lost the game behind a strong Hyun-Jin Ryu start. This may be the cause of the decreased approval ratings, but it’s interesting to see the results didn’t take larger dip.
Dodgers fans seem to really love Roberts. Throughout the entirety of the season so far, his approval ratings have not dipped below 80 percent. On the “confidence in the direction of the team” question, 84 percent of the respondents said they have faith in the Dodgers.
For this week’s national question, we asked if you approve of MLB commissioner Rob Manfred. Manfred has made many efforts to speed up the pace of play in his three years as commissioner. Fans seem to be cut down the middle, with a nearly 50/50 result.
