The Atlanta Braves have struggled in September, going just 8-12. The St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants have been surging and are now pushing the Braves in the wild card race. With Atlanta’s lead in the wild care down to 2.5 games, utility man Eric Hinske decided to pull out all the stops Thursday. He went with the mohawk:
Hinske last sported that ‘do in 2008 as a member of the Rays. Tampa Bay reached the World Series that year. Maybe he’s hoping for the same result, although that might be considered wishful thinking. Whatever it is, Hinske almost assuredly won’t be as big of a factor for the Braves as he was for the Rays. The only hope is that his loose attitude will rub off on the rest of the team. Maybe someone in Boston’s clubhouse should take a cue. And let’s hope that Hinske didn’t go full-Morrison on the world.
