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.
We’re off on the Woodstock trip. I want to make sure the guys have a good time. There’s no panic. Keep playing hard. pic.twitter.com/C596FX1LpQ

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?
