POLL: Nation Somewhat Divided On Whether To Keep Craig Kimbrel As Closer

Early (but vigorous) voting in our latest FenwayNation Poll shows that a slim majority of readers (54%) are opposed to the Red Sox re-signing closer Craig Kimbrel—now a free agent. As the chart shows, a substantial minority (46%) support re-signing Kimbrel. After turning down Boston's qualifying offer of $17.5 million, it has been assumed that Kimbrel would get multiple long-term offers from other clubs—and choose to go elsewhere. So far though, it appears that the Red Sox are at least still in the mix for the 30-year-old's services for 2019 and beyond. You can still vote in the poll HERE.
