A lot of folks dread Mondays, but perhaps none more than the Braves.
They've played 11 games on Monday this year. They've lost all 11.
That's right. Count them.
Three or four might be a fluke. Seven or eight might be a trend.
That's worse than a Monday Malaise.
Call it a Monday Malfunction.
It's become a curse.
No. 11 became official when Cubs center fielder Tony Campana squeezed the last out in a 4-1 victory over the Braves at Turner Field, extending their Monday Misery one more week.
The Braves have been equal opportunity losers on Mondays.
They've lost to good teams (the Dodgers, the Reds, the Cardinals and the Yankees). They've lost to terrible teams (the Astros and the Cubs twice).
They've been blown out (8-3, 9-3, 8-2) and they've lost tight games (3-1, 3-0).
They've been one Monday worse at home (0-6) than they have been on the road (0-5).
Their 4-1 loss at Cincinnati on May 21 kicked off a season-worst eight-game losing streak.
