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

Despite a championship ring and back-to-back World Series appearances, manager Ned Yost has always been a polarizing figure in Kansas City. Some were surprised he has stayed on through a rebuild process, but in many ways he seems looser than ever before. Rustin Dodd at The Athletic had a terrific profile recently of the cantankerous Yost and his verbal spars with reporters.

Leading up to Opening Day, we asked our FanPulse fans how they felt about the Royals skipper.

Survey participants were also asked about the following Royals topics. Here’s how they responded:

Are you confident in the direction of the Royals?

64% Yes

36% No

Will the Royals win the World Series this year?

7% Yes

93% No

Well, at least we’re on the right track. Maybe this team just needs a million-dollar arm or two to kick-start the rebuild!
