After one day, Robertson back to high-socks look
BALTIMORE -- David Robertson is somewhat flattered that so many people pay attention to the status of his socks, as it seems to create a minor stir every time he wears them differently.

Robertson pitched in Wednesday's Yankees 6-4 win over the Rays with his pants legs low, shunning his usual high-socks look. Robertson said the change had nothing to do with the club's recent struggles.

"I'm not really a superstitious guy," Robertson said. "It's just that I was joking around with Stew [catcher Chris Stewart], and I asked if I should wear them down. He said, 'Absolutely,' so I did."

Robertson and his wife, Erin, embraced the look by naming their charity High Socks for Hope. Robertson said no name change is in the works; he planned to return to his usual style on Thursday.
