Infrequent Braves Success Linked to Jeff Francouer's Underoos

Gobble gobble! Jeff Francouer's got a lucky pair of skivvies and after seven straight Atlanta wins while wearing them, he's ready to make his man-panties public to inspire the 35-40 Braves team to keep on winning. Of course, the drawers in question are Thanksgiving-themed "turkey underwear".

He's only worn them this season in must-win situations, such as last Monday's rainout makeup game against the Chicago Cubs, after the Braves lost back-to-back games at Boston. They beat the Cubs.

He wore them again Sunday for a home-series finale against the Red Sox, after the Braves lost the first two in the series. With rookie Tommy Hanson (flu symptoms) questionable entering Sunday's game, and Yunel Escobar and Nate McLouth out of the lineup, Francoeur pulled out the stops.

"I wore the turkey underwear," he announced before Sunday's game. Hanson then proceded to pitch six scoreless innings Sunday and the Braves beat the Red Sox, 2-1.

So many questions! Are they boxers? Are they briefs?

Francoeur said he had not worn the turkey briefs for back-to-back games all season, but will Tuesday (the Braves were off Monday, and he planned to ask his wife, Catie, to wash the underwear).

Hold on, Frenchy! Baseball's superstitious ways dictate that you are NEVER supposed to wash a lucky garment! Keep those skidmarks intact and wear the tarnished turkey trunks with pride.

What walks less--a pen-raised turkey, or Jeff Francoeur?

Brilliant, Gorge. +1

Maybe if he spent more time in the batting cage and less time worrying about underwear he got could get a basehit and the Braves could score a run.

Brilliant!!
