The Laundry Factor: How Sox Unis Impact Wins
SportsLogos.net, has come up with a unique way to gauge the success of your favorite team. Just analyze which uniforms they wear when they win and which ones they wear when they lose. OK, let's try it with the Carmine Hose in 2013. According to the site, Boston is 25-16 (.610) in its traditional white home unis, 24-20 (.545) in its standard grey road unis. Ah, but their alternate red home unis result in a 6-1 (.857) mark, while the blue alternate road laundry gets only a 3-3 (.500) record. Charity and holiday unis really have too small a sample size to mean anything. The bottom line? Both red at home and grey on the road do a lot better than the other options. Who knew?
