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

The MLB playoffs have been a wild rush of games so far. But fans are still absorbing as much baseball as possible.

In the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey asked Monday before the start of play, fans were asked to pick a winner from each of the LCS series. Those fans picked the Oakland Athletics, Tampa Bay Rays, Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves to advance. The Braves earned the highest percentage of the fan vote with more than 75 percent.

After their Wild Card sweep at the hands of the Atlanta Braves, confidence among Cincinnati Reds fans took a hit. This week, the percentage of fans confident the team is headed in the right direction dropped nearly 30 points to 43 percent.

Additionally, fans were asked what they were most surprised by from the Wild Card series. Just over 40 percent of those who responded were most surprised by the Miami Marlins sweep of the Chicago Cubs.
