That was true in 2005, but not so much since then. The Sox started going completely overboard with black jerseys again in 2007. When they lost in the white or gray jerseys, they would change for the next game. However, they often would wear the black jerseys after three losses in a row. They went on road trips where they didn't even bring the gray jerseys.

Sure enough, black jerseys again tonight. I guess Brooks' initiative to emphasize the road jersey he messed up and limit the wearing of the black jersey only lasted one season. I'm guessing we're in for 100+ games in black jerseys again this year.
