Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged-in Texas Rangers fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

According to the latest SB Nation Reacts survey, 64 percent of Rangers fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s up from 56 percent to start the season.

A part of that confidence comes from feelings about the team’s ability to score. Rangers fans, however, aren’t sold on the offense.

The Rangers start may have come as something of a surprise to some fans around the league. But it wasn’t the biggest surprise. According to fans around Major League Baseball, 28-year-old Chicago White Sox rookie Yermin Mercedes red-hot start at the plate is the most shocking outcome of the season’s first week.

Mercedes earned 42 percent of the vote, beating out the slow start by Atlanta which took 23 percent, the Baltimore Oriole’s hot start took 18 percent while Los Angeles Angels star Shohei Ohtani’s two-way success took 9 percent.
