THEME:   themeless: 30 blocks
   
GOOD ONES:    
Something up grandma's sleeve?   HANKY   
Words of Hope   QUIP [Bob Hope]   
First of seven?   ESS [S- is the first letter of the word seven]   
One in doubt?   SILENT-B [I'm getting better at these, but I need the question mark]   
Fall setting   EDEN [not seasonal]   
   
BTW:   
All 26 letters were used.   
   
Am I imagining it, or are there more baseball clues this year than ever before?   
   
Nobility   PEERS [peers are members of the nobility; peerage is nobility]   
   
For a puzzle lacking a theme, this one is most enjoyable for its smart and divergent cluing.   
   
RATING: ;D ;D ;D   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
