    Minor typo in the final Grab Bag piece. It should be “Canisteo” rather than “Caniesto.”
    This jumped out to me because I served on the USS CANISTEO (named after the Canisteo River) some years ago.

    The NASCAR era has arrived in MLB. That Kyle Harrison jersey will be the norm rather than the exception.
