Joc Pederson's bedhead is what happens when the Dodgers play an early game on the East Coast

The Dodgers play the Nationals at 12:05 PM on Thursday for the final game of their three-game series at Nationals Park. And yes, that's 12:05 PM ET, or 9:05 AM PT -- meaning the Dodgers have to wake up and hit the ballpark a bit earlier than they're used to. Many of them might have just rolled out of bed. 

So please, Adrian Gonzalez, excuse any bedhead you might see.

Not that Joc Pederson is ashamed, of course.

Because, as his Instagram can attest, Joc takes his hair very seriously.

Just don't be surprised if there's a late-afternoon clubhouse nap session after the game.
