The Atlanta Braves continued their march towards a second straight NL East division crown this week. Fresh off of taking three of four from the Washington Nationals, Atlanta split a four-game series in Philadelphia but was able to reduce its magic number to eight in the process. With 91 wins, Atlanta has already eclipsed last season’s win total and with a strong finish, could reach the 100 win mark for the first time since 2003.
As a result, confidence in the direction of the team has soared of late topping out at 99% of the vote for three straight weeks.
Additionally, Brian Snitker’s approval rating remains strong holding steady at 89% for the second straight week.
This week’s national questions centered on the division race in the NL Central and AL Central. Entering play on Friday, the St. Louis Cardinals have a four game lead over the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central. A whopping 77% of FanPulse voters think the Cardinals will hold on and win the division.
Over in the American League, the Minnesota Twins hold a 3.5 game lead over the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central entering Friday. A commanding 84% of FanPulse voters think they will hold on to take the division crown.
