Nationals Supreme Court: What is the Nats' best jersey?

Nationals Supreme Court: What is the Nats' best jersey?

It is time for another installment of 'Nationals Supreme Court,' where we lay out arguments and vote on the most timeless debates in Nats history. With three people, we can break the tie.

Yesterday, we debated the value of Bryce Harper and Anthony Rendon. Today, we look at the best jerseys ever worn by the Nationals. The votes were cast by Nick Ashooh, Chase Hughes and Matt Weyrich...

Nick Ashooh: How can it be anything other than those beautiful road blues they wore during their World Series run? It can’t be. People were obsessed. They sold out everywhere.

Plus, they just looked great. Which is kind of important too. Gimme the blue.  

NICK'S VOTE: Blue/road

Matt Weyrich: I understand the hype surrounding the Nationals’ navy-blue alternates. They were their lucky jerseys throughout an incredible playoff run that culminated with their first World Series victory in franchise history. I’m not trying to undersell the importance of those jerseys, but nothing can ever top the classic home whites with the red curly W.

It’s hard to get a better representation of what constitutes a baseball jersey out of the Nationals’ current set of threads. The white fabric shows exactly how much dirt a player accumulates throughout the game, something pretty unique to baseball. And as much as I do think the script “Nationals” across the chest looks clean, the text is a bit too slanted for my liking and I’ve always been partial to the team logo patch over the heart.

However, above all else the white jerseys are easy to find online. It took months for the Nationals to make the navy blues available and even then, they still were double the price of normal jerseys. If I have to pick one jersey to see the players in, give me the home whites. It’s a look that will withstand the test of time while paying tribute to the roots of the game.

MATT'S VOTE: White/home

Chase Hughes: Why don't we start with some facts? Blue is objectively a better color than red. Fact number one.

Fact number two: the Washington Nationals won the 2019 World Series, and when they did, they were wearing their blue alternate uniforms that say 'Nationals' across the chest. Daniel Hudson's final out, Juan Soto's bat delivery and Howie Kendrick's homer off the foul pole; all of it happened in the blue jerseys.

That makes them an obvious choice as the best jersey the Nats wear or have ever worn. They are the best-looking Nationals uniforms and they bring good luck to the field. Easy decision.

CHASE'S VOTE: Blue/road

--

WINNER: The blue/road jerseys, based on a 2-1 vote.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone complains about Phillies fans blowing airhorns outside stadium

Yankees manager Aaron Boone complains about Phillies fans blowing airhorns outside stadium

Phillies fans haven’t been allowed inside Citizens Bank Park to heckle opposing players this season, but they still found a way to draw the ire of New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone.

During Thursday night’s contest between the Phillies and Yankees, Boone pulled the umpires aside in between frames to complain about a group of fans outside the stadium blowing an airhorn during his team’s at-bats. The sound could be heard on the TV broadcast as Phillies starter Zach Eflin handled Aaron Hicks, Giancarlo Stanton and Gleyber Torres in 1-2-3 fashion.

They’re apparently called the “Fandemic Crew” and have attending all Phillies home games to cheer them on. Word quickly reached the group that Boone wasn’t happy with their airhorn.

Considering the fans were outside the stadium, there really wasn’t much the umpires could do. It appears not even a pandemic is going to stop Phillies fans from making their presence known.

MLB announces schedule to make up Nationals-Marlins postponements

MLB announces schedule to make up Nationals-Marlins postponements

The Washington Nationals will make up their postponed three-game series with the Miami Marlins over multiple dates when the teams were previously scheduled to play.

Saturday, Aug. 22, the Nationals will be the home team in the first game of a doubleheader, then the road team in the second game. Doubleheaders now consist of two seven-inning games. That game will be a makeup for the July 31 game that was postponed because of a coronavirus outbreak within the Marlins organization which delayed a three-game series scheduled to be played in Miami on July 31-Aug. 2.

Friday, Sept. 18, in Miami will be another doubleheader. That accounts for the Aug. 1 postponement.

Sunday, Sept. 20 will be a final doubleheader to make up for the Aug. 2 postponement. It also means the Nationals will play five games in three days in Miami before the final week of the season begins.

The Nationals will play 12 games in 10 days to close the season.
