Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Yankees fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.
With a victory over the Padres on Wednesday afternoon, the Yankees notched their eight consecutive series win. When a team piles up wins on top of wins, one can expect fans to walk away satisfied. That holds true for the Bombers, who enjoy a 91% confidence rating from our FanPulse respondents. This is the third consecutive week with scores in the 90s, making for a new record on the season.
Additionally, Aaron Boone received an 83% approval rating this week. This represents his second highest score of the season, only trailing the preseason poll mark of 84%. Some fans will never be happy with Boone regardless of his performance or the team’s success, so I wonder if this makes for a plateau.
Elsewhere around the league, fans believe international amateurs should be included in the MLB Draft.
While it may streamline the process, this effectively creates a new way for ownership to curtail costs. There are a number of ramifications that extend far beyond the convenience of a single draft.
