While the Diamondbacks have seemed frustratingly inconsistent, all of the regular, non-special uniform combinations (The first, uh, 7 on this list) posted a .500 record or better. Throwback Thursday and Player’s Weekend were the outliers. Of course, at the time of writing, the D-Backs are up 1.5 games in the West. The system works.

For Throwback Thursday, the Diamondbacks wore the Sedona Red Jersey from the previous generation. The last time they wore those uniforms was the last game of the Sedona Red Era (2007-2015) on October 4th, 2015 against the Astros. I was at that game! Chad Qualls took a loss at Chase Field. How novel.

The D-Backs are in a tight race for the NL West and, should it come to that, a Wild Card. Maximizing wins based on uniform choice will be key. Wearing the Teal almost exclusively at Home and the standard Grey-With-Black-Pattern on the road. This will override any offensive inconsistency, sudden pitcher regression, carrying three catchers for some reason, etc.

It’s just science.
