Before we get to today's puzzle, just want to note that you don't want to miss next Monday's puzzle, as it's straight from the mind of Mr Customer!
Anyhow, here's today's:
Puzzle Rules: The answer to the puzzle is a MLB team (not the Dodgers). Comment freely in the thread, but if you have the solution, please don't give it away to everyone in the comments section. Instead, do the following:
- Email us with the team name and the reasoning behind it. Answers submitted without reasoning, or with the incorrect reasoning (even if the answer itself is correct) will count for participation credit only. And please include your screen name somewhere in the email; and
- Post a comment simply saying you have emailed your solution attempt. I may not be able to reply to your original email promptly, so please be patient and check back on the comment thread for the latest news; I may confirm correct answers there.
You have until midnight PT tonight to submit your answer. Good luck!
Hint #1 (9:03am): Although the piece of prose is important, the subject matter it deals with (players who played their careers for the same team) is not.
Hint #2 (11:30am): Hint posted. Also, the courier type and the jpg rather than text is not irrelevant, but it is not the crux of the puzzle. It basically made the puzzle easier to make, especially while half-asleep.
Comment (not a hint): I wrote this last night from 2:30-3am, and only now see how awkward the wording is. But in terms of the puzzle, it still does the job!
