Braves right fielder Jeff Francoeur says the team is 7-0 when he wears his lucky ‘turkey underwear’ to Turner Field. And in Chicago, a die-hard Cubs fan says he’ll go on a post-All-Star game ‘hunger strike’ (actually, he’ll eat 500 calories a day) as a way of “shaming” the team until they win five in a row, something the Cubs haven’t done this season.
YOU TELL US: We KNOW the Braves should get more hits and play more fundamentally sound baseball. But we’re asking you what extreme measures you, as a fan, would take to get this team going on a hot streak — a hunger strike? Heading to The Ted in special skivvies? Getting a rally mohawk? What, just for fun, would be your ULTIMATE Braves Doomsday Plan? (Keep it clean, y’all.)
