Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon makes poster for team's 'Woodstock' trip


Joe Maddon is totally committed to this weird #Woodstock bit of his for some reason.

This weekend he showed up at the ballpark dressed as a hippie. Now he’s created a poster to further illustrate…whatever the hell it is he’s trying to illustrate.



This seems to be some kind of psychological move by Maddon, something to keep his team loose as they embark on a seven game road trip.

Maddon’s own explanation makes about as much sense as anything ever uttered by a hippie. Which is to say, none.

“The trip is going to be beautiful,” Maddon said via Cut Four. “You’ve got Felix [Hernandez], then [Hisashi Iwakuma] to follow. It’s really nice. That’s after a 5 1/2 hour flight into the wind. The good part is that we’ll be dressed appropriately and I want to make sure the guys have a good time. It’s no time to get panicky, down or anything like that. Just keep playing the game hard and it comes back to you.”


Like, peace man?
