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

This week’s FanPulse results are in and we have seen a drop in Braves’ fans confidence in the direction of the team overall. It is still early and these results will likely stabilize overtime. In our first week, fan confidence in the direction of the team was at 85 percent. This week that is down to 63 percent.

Atlanta’s 0-3 start and bullpen struggles in Philadelphia likely played a part in these results. The Braves’ front office failed to add any significant additions to the bullpen this offseason and injuries to A.J. Minter and Darren O’Day have weakened it further. Atlanta has won two straight at home over the Cubs so it wouldn’t be terribly surprising to see this number creep back up again next week.

Also, Brian Snitker’s approval rating dropped to 62 percent this week which is down from 92 percent at the start of the season. Again these numbers will likely stabilize as we go further. If you haven’t signed up yet and want in on the action you can do so by going to this link.
