There isn’t a whole lot to talk about this Friday the 16th other than to say the Port of Houston Authority is back in the cruise business down at Bayport. That’s a good thing. Here is this from the Chron:

From 1956 through 1966, the National League snagged the Cy Young Award seven times of course and the American League snagged it four times.
I don’t have anything from The Yard – sorry.
