PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Justin Turner is over Carly Rae Jepsen.

Turner, whose use of "Call Me Maybe" last season as his music before at-bats generated quite a bit of buzz, expects to make a change for 2013.

"It'll probably be something new, but I'll keep it in the back pocket," Turner said about Jepsen's tune.

The motivation?

Said Turner: "She didn't win any awards with it. ... No, I'm kidding. ... I just wanted her to thank me in her acceptance speech."

Turner said he has become extremely identifiable with the song.

"I get three or four tweets a day: 'Hey @redturn2, I just went into the gym and 'Call Me Maybe' was playing,'" Turner said. "I just like to keep it new every year and fresh and mix it up."
