You might have a lucky Orioles jersey, the one you always wear when the O's badly need a 'W.'
But as superstitious as baseball players are, there's surely no correlation between uniform choices and a team's success, right?
Chris Creamer's sportslogos.net might beg to differ.
The website has a post that breaks down every team's record this season based on each different uniform piece worn. (Hat tip to intern extraordinaire Daniel Gallen, who tweeted this out.)
According to Creamer's stats, the Orioles are at their best (20-15) wearing the traditional home whites. They're 20-18 in the road grays and a combined 2-0 with the home and road jerseys that featured that camouflage print.
The Orioles haven't been very good on home Saturdays, going just 2-5 in their bright orange tops.
They're 8-6 when wearing the black alternate jerseys -- 5-1 at home and 3-5 on the road.
And you were wondering why the Blue Jays have been so disappointing this season? Toronto has a winning record in every jersey except one -- the Jays are a woeful 3-15 when wearing their road grays. (Mothball those and this AL East race might really heat up.)
