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

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, 48 percent of Cubs fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s down from 69 percent last week and 68 percent the week before.

This should be noted for a comparison point:

The specific numbers: Orioles 67 percent, Cubs 48 percent. Our own Deputy Mayor of Rush Street has the likely answer:

Can’t really argue with that.

Fans in the most recent survey believe Toronto Blue Jays star Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and his Hall of Fame father Vladimir Guerrero Sr. are the best father-son duo with one player currently active, taking 79 percent of the vote. Fernando Tatis Jr. and his dad finished in a distant second with 12 percent.

Despite being in just his third season, Tatis Jr. has undoubtedly stepped out of his father’s shadow and stands as a star in his own right. 81 percent of fans in the Reacts survey believe the San Diego Padres shortstop will have a better career than his dad.

Just over a quarter of fans surveyed believe Vlad Jr. will be better than his dad — a Hall of Famer! —a with slightly under a quarter believing the same about his teammate Bo Bichette.
