Washington's Starting Pitchers Must Like To Get Their Red On


During the first 13 home games of 2010 at Nationals Park, you might have noticed that Our Washington Nationals have worn their alternate Red Curly "W" Jerseys far more often then the regular home whites. Even for Opening Day, Washington wore their Red Alternates.

Curious minds wanted to know whether the Home Whites have been supplanted as the uniform of choice? Sohna and I asked Our General Manager Mike Rizzo this exact question before the first Inside Pitch Live @ The PNC Diamond Club this past Saturday. His response--it's the decision of that day's starting pitcher.

So clearly, Washington's Starting Pitchers Must Like To Get Their Red On.

That's pretty interesting, actually. Now we need to compile a list of who was pitching for each game and what uniforms they wore.

And the obvious next question: What Will Jesus Wear?

I had been wondering about the same thing. Thanks for asking.

I am a bit surprised the players have any say in the matter.

I was wondering if this was a way to transition out of the block NATIONALS home whites into something new, either a script Nationals or curly W white jersey.

Is that common practice through out MLB, or is that unique to the Nats. Not expecting you to know, but in case you find out.

Many teams let the starting pitcher choose the jersey. Just like choosing the clubhouse music before the game.
