Brewers Jersey Tracker

I'm sure I'm not the only who has noticed the lack of Retro Fridays this season, and perhaps you might have known this, but I didn't. Apparently the Brewers are no longer wearing their retro uniforms every home Friday, and instead just wearing them during their first Friday home game of each month. Since they didn't want to wear them on Opening Day, we've only seen them once this season. I had no idea.

What I'm sure we have all noticed though is that the Brewers hardly wear the same jersey two nights in a row, as the pitcher makes the decision as to which uniform they should wear. I've always found this rather interesting, now if only some one would compile a database on the subject? We're in luck, as one of the readers at UniWatch has already done so.

Reader werthj has noticed the following - Suppan always wears the standard uniform sets, Gallardo goes with the blues, Parra usually goes with the blues, while Looper and Bush like the standard sets as well. He's got more analysis in this article (the Brewers are the third team down).

Not only that, but he's got the spreadsheet to back it up, which is really the whole reason I'm writing this article in the first place. Here is the spreadsheet which shows which uniform was worn in every game, how many times each pitcher wore what uniform, and what the Brewers records are while wearing the respective uniform. Enjoy.

Thanks for this post. I had been wondering what happened to retro Friday. I can finally sleep again.

Ha, your welcome.

By the way, what keeps happening to all the pictures I post?

Heading to bed tonight, but Brewers recap, roster moves, and Winks Thinks all coming Thursday.
