Why is David Price wearing No. 10? Red Sox hurler keeps switch a mystery

David Price wants the jersey sleuths to do their own detective work.

During his introductory press conference in Fort Myers, Fla., the Boston Red Sox pitcher was asked why he changed his uniform number from 24 to 10 earlier this offseason.

Here was his response:

“I’ma let you guys figure it out. It’s not that tough, I feel like you can get it. Somebody will get it and everybody’s gonna be like ‘oh, ok, wow.’”

Thanks for clearing that up, David.

Are we sure he isn’t just trying to confound Jerry at every turn?

MLB Rumors: ‘Mystery Team’ Involved In Manny Machado Sweepstakes

The Manny Machado sweepstakes were narrowed to two teams Friday, or so we thought.

The New York Yankees appeared to withdraw consideration for Machado’s services when they reportedly agreed to terms with veteran infielder DJ LeMahieu. Not to mention, a new report indicated not all Yankees executives were on board with the idea of bringing Machado to The Bronx.

As such, the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox became the effective front runners to sign Machado in free agency. But according to Fancred’s Jon Heyman, it still might be a three-horse race to acquire the four-time All-Star.

Are your blindfolds on, panel?

In that case, we begin the questioning of our Mystery Team with Dorothy Kilgallen. Ms. Kilgallen?
