An Essential A-to-z On Effortless Secrets
“The white zin days are long behind us,” she said. Our No. 1 bottle was an old friend, the Edmunds St. John Bone Jolly gamay noir rosé from El Dorado County in California — savory, saline and simply delicious. Gamay noir is the grape of Beaujolais, hence the egregious Bone Jolly pun. Nonetheless, Steve Edmunds has pioneered modern gamay production in California, making both a red and this rosé, which has been superb year in and year out. Perhaps coincidentally, our No. 3 wine was also a gamay noir rosé, the Folk Machine from Arroyo Seco in the Central Coast. It was dry and succulent, but a very different style: more delicate and ephemeral than the Bone Jolly, which could easily age a couple of years.

And a manager is rarely stuck without sufficient time to get the right pitcher warm. Every once in a while, though, a rapid-fire decision must be made. And sometimes, as happened here on Wednesday night, the direction of a baseball game can pivot on it. While Greg Bird belted a grand slam, Sonny Gray delivered a salving performance and the Yankees got out of town with a resounding 9-0 victory over the Baltimore Orioles, the roots to their agreeable getaway could be traced to a single play. With no score, runners at the corners and one out in the third inning, Didi Gregorius hit a crisp one-hopper back to pitcher Dylan Bundy and the course for the rest of the game was set in motion. As soon as the ball settled into the glove of the right-handed Bundy, he faced a choice: throw home to get Brett Gardner, who had bolted from third, or turn and fire to shortstop Manny Machado at second to start a 1-6-3 double play. There were other considerations to be made: Gregorius is a swift runner, so the double play would have to be turned crisply. But the reward for doing so would be considerable: It would strand the dangerous Giancarlo Stanton in the on-deck circle. So, as Bundy gathered the ball, the quick calculus was made. The sight of Gardner breaking for home proved alluring enough that Bundy threw to catcher Caleb Joseph, who ran at Gardner and tagged him out, removing a runner from third base. “The ball was hit at me, and I don’t want the runner to score because I was able to see he was halfway down the line, and I gave it up to Caleb,” Bundy said.
