BTW, I know I’m a little late to the thread but, while I’m ambivalent about the players weekend and the silly nicknames, I hate these black and white uniforms.

The best move for the players weekend is the Pirates pitcher who has league permission to have his glove marked to look like the Infinity Gauntlet. If he had all of the Infinity Stones I’d bet that could add a few MPH to his fastball.

Eh, I don’t think so. I think almost any manager would still let a pitcher run it up to 115 or so...per usual.

No manager is going to do it when you are at 100 after 6 innings not before and not now.

But you never see pitch counts get that high anymore. If you have even one laborious inning you have no shot to complete the game.

"You're not going to have him when you want him and you're going to run out of games. He can't pitch 90 games. It's just not going to work. If anyone thinks it's going to work, show me how."- Craig Counsell on Josh Hader.

Could have added a no-hitter banner over the left field wall.


Got a good chuckle out of this one!

Why was Williams the only one on the field with a black hat?

In general, yes...if you had a no-hitter going I don’t think it would be the same.

PItchers aren't allowed to wear the white hats, from what the announcers are saying.

Did you just arrive? Pitcher can’t wear white on the head, glove, or the arms. Thus, improvise by the league.

Williams is throwing 97 with a 85 mph charge up. This guy should be a lock for next year pen. More impressive than the Taylor Williams Jacob Barnes types we have been stuck with.

He is memorializing the "Iron Brigade"--a Civil War unit from Wisconsin known as the "Blackhats"

Woodruff is the latest example that highlights that when the Brewers tell you that a player (especially a pitcher will be out X weeks you should figure that it will really be at least X +2 or 3.

Right, cuz the team celebrates personal accomplishments with banners over the left field wall... bluish. Great attempt.

He popped into this thread and learned how much of an eyesore the uniforms were, thought he'd give us a break. [laughing]

Just turned the game on last inning and started reading this thread. If it weren’t for the posts mentioning the score, I would think the Brewers are losing. And I like the uniforms.

But they are allowed to wear snow white jerseys and pants...

We'd be more impressed if Lyles hadn't walked those 2 guys.

The pitcher doesn’t typically pitch it between his legs.

Most MLB home jerseys are white, just with colored lettering. Also, most pitcher's release points are at or above the shoulder.
