Themeless #2

January 12, 2023:

This was my second themeless puzzle. Looking back at it I’m still proud of most of the fill, and I love the stacks in the NW and SE corners.

40-Down was a bit of a goof because I of all people forgot how to spell five-time New York Yankees All-Star Bobby’s last name. If I were cluing it again I’d go with the New Jersey county instead.
