A thing to keep your eye on

The way Coco Crisp wears his socks depends on how he’s feeling that day according to an interview he did with PaperMag while he was still playing with the Indians:

"When I wear my pants to my ankles I feel like more of a big guy… like I have more power. And when I wear them at the knees — showing full sock — I feel more like a speedster. I switch it up based on how I feel. "

Also on the hat thing Coco does:

I wore my hat to the side in Little League but when I got to high school everyone said wear your hat straight. In the minors I was able to have fun again and put it to the side. I decided to keep it going in the big leagues and hoped nobody would say anything and they didn’t. it just feels more comfortable.
