A Secret Communique: For Beardy's Eyes Only

In a similar vein to the Allen & Ginter Crack the Code Contest, I have created a secret message intended for Beardy from Beardy's Baseball Blog using only a series of insert cards that are adorned with special symbols. I hope I have left enough clues so that, through a group effort, a few gifted code crackers can decipher the message. As a tip, I'd urge you to pay careful attention to the geographical location of primary team each of the players pictured was associated with, not to mention the careful sequencing of uniform numbers. Color also has a lot to do with any eventual breaking of the code; one false assumption can really screw the pooch on this one. Oh, and before I forget, make sure to take into account first-time Hall of Fame eligibility years, average slugging percentage, and years in the U.S. Senate. (And don't bother running the names through an AL/NL matrix -- it's a red herring.)




Beardy, I wouldn't have posted this if the Ravens had lost, but on a day when your team qualifies for the playoffs, I'd imagine that a man can take anything that's thrown at him. A feud doesn't take any days off, you know.
