MLB: Houston Astros at San Francisco Giants Ed Szczepanski-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. Astros fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

The Astros fanbase remains confident in the management and direction of the team at almost 100%, as usual. Asked about whether the team should buy or sell at the deadline, every respondent said BUY!

I broke down the data league wide, and found that there were 17 fanbases who thought the team should buy, eight that said sell, and five that tended to prefer a stand pat policy

If front offices see it the same way, that means there are twice as many buyers than sellers, a bad harbinger for any team’s hopes of acquiring this year’s “Verlander.”
