So for the second straight season, I have compiled the win/loss records of the Diamondbacks’ various uniform combinations. After every game, adding up a number in a spreadsheet, sometimes doing it late at night right before I go to bed. Sometimes realizing you made an error since home and away records didn’t add up and having to go back weeks at a time through games to correct it.
All in the name of science.
Normally I’d put a chart that the SB Nation Beta Editor would make for me, but I feel like I should introduce you to the madness. This is the spreadsheet, which I set up last year, with additions for new uniforms tried this year. (And apparently the Diamondbacks have different numbers! I don’t know where I went wrong! Am I actually wrong? I’m going crazy over this!)
The Snakeskin/Teal/Other doesn’t add up, I’m aware. I didn’t bother to make calculations for those columns. I’m very much doubting myself. Does anybody care?
There’s a certain madness that comes with this. The Diamondbacks are wearing the Home Teal for the Wild Card Game. However, if you look at the chart, assuming I’m right, the main home unis would be the more optimal choice! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Thank you for reading, I may do this again next year, we shall see what the future brings.
