• OK, I love baseball, and I (duh) love wine. But I don’t love, or really much like, this mashup of the two.
• Speaking of ballpark refreshments, here is an interesting attempt to resuscitate the once-admired Fetzer brand. It doesn’t seem any more overpriced than everything else at major league parks.
