Analyzing the Road Jerseys: August 2012 edition

A couple of months ago, I was really bored and went through pictures from the entire 2012 season and put up a post about how likely we are to win when wearing the grey or navy jerseys. I've been keeping up with the spreadsheet since then and thought y'all might like an update. Here is the original post, which was written on the Sunday of the Boston series in June.

 

Current numbers

Navy overall record: 15-11 (.577 winning percentage)
Grey overall record: 22-18 (.550 winning percentage)

Beachy: 6 navy (3-3) ~ 1 grey (1-0)

Delgado: 1 navy (0-1) ~ 7 grey (3-4)

Hanson: 9 navy (6-3) ~ 5 grey (3-2)

Hudson: 10 grey (8-2)

Jurrjens: 5 navy (2-3)

Maholm: 3 grey (1-2)

Medlen: 3 grey (3-0)

Minor: 5 navy (4-1) ~ 7 grey (2-5)

Sheets: 4 grey (2-2)

 

In the interest of brevity, the spreadsheet below is only for the past couple of months (you can see previous months in the first jersey post)...

Conclusions

1. Everyone looks better in Navy.

2. We win more in the Navy jerseys.

3. The likelihood of the veteran pitchers choosing the (relatively) new uniforms is pretty low.

4. Delgado's stats aren't skewing the results any more than Huddy's stats are in this highly scientific study. ;)

5. I miss Beachy.

6. Mike Minor should really look at our W/L record when he's choosing the jerseys and make wise decisions going forward. ;)

 

(Of course, all of this is assuming the word on the street is true, that the starting pitcher chooses the jersey when we play on the road. If that's not actually the case this thing isn't as fun, but it's still interesting.)

 

Have you played "Hot or Not" in the FUN tab of the blog? Looks like Navy is the winner so far!
