MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Oakland Athletics Stan Szeto-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.

Tracking the plunge of the Angels’ approval rating all season has been truly something.

We’re now down to just 34% approval, which is basically one in every three individuals. Billy Eppler needs to step up in the offseason to regain the trust of the fans, or it could be another long season next year.

Are you confident in the direction of the Angels?

34% Yes (down from 36% last week)

66% No

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

58% Yes (up from 57% last week)

42% No

More fans seem to believe the team’s slide in the second half isn’t the fault of Brad Ausmus, although he still has taken a little hit from his average of 80% even a month-and-a-half ago. The season takes a toll on all fans.

There are really only two division races left in dispute. We asked fans who would win the division in each of the races, and here are the results!

The Twins and the Cardinals are each up 3.5 games in their respective divisions. It will be hard for the Indians and the Cubs to catch them.
