MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Minnesota Twins Jordan Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

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

With the 15th overall selection in the 2019 MLB draft, the Angels picked Will Wilson, a shortstop from North Carolina State.

Over two-thirds of fans approved of this pick. It may have been a safer pick to save slot money, but Wilson is a talented player in his own right. Already, the Angels have signed third-round selection Jack Kochanowicz for above-slot money.

In the week’s main question, 60% of fans think that netting should be extended all the way to the foul pole.

I probably fall somewhere in the middle. The netting needs to be extended considerably, but I am not yet sure if it should go all the way to the foul poles. The MLB should conduct a study on the matter.

Are you confident in the direction of the Angels?

79% Yes (up from 62% last week)

21% No

Do you approve of the job manager Brad Ausmus has done?

66% Yes (up from 54% last week)

34% No

The Angels once again had a good week (5-2), contributing to the higher numbers for the poll.
