STICK TO A ROUTINE
Matt Wieters, catcher

“I like to get to the ballpark the same time every day. It’s just a matter of going through my routine, get in the hot tub to get loose, go through my extra work.”


MAKE IT A BUBBLE
Steve Pearce, outfielder

“Whatever works the previous day, you try to carry it over. I have stuff that
I do. Going up to bat with gum, blowing bubbles on deck, little stuff like that.”


SAVE MY SEAT
Darren O’Day, pitcher

“We have goofy handshakes in the bullpen. Plus, Jim Johnson won’t let anybody sit in his seat. The second seat from the right should say ‘King James.’”


BURN YOUR CLOTHES
Lew Ford, outfielder

“If you had a big day, I don’t think I’d wash my underclothes, which is kind of gross. If you’re in a slump or something, you throw everything away. Burn it.”
