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.

There are many problems with the juiced ball. Pitchers necessarily look worse, and they are getting pulled earlier than ever, causing bullpens to become overworked and fail in key situations. Baseball is completely changed.

About three in every four voters said that the juiced ball is bad, perhaps for the aforementioned reasons. The only good that can come out of it is the excitement that comes from more home runs, I guess. And crazily high scoring games.

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

78% Yes (down from 82% last week)

18% No

Are you confident in the direction of the Angels?

47% Yes (unchanged from 47% last week)

53% No

Meanwhile, the Angels continue to free-fall into the ether.
