Recaps of both the Yankees’ 11-5 loss to the Orioles on Tuesday night (which I had the misfortune of witnessing live), and Wednesday’s 12-3 streak-busting, Cano-grand-slam-hitting win coming tomorrow. Today, though, I suggest you take nine minutes out of your busy schedules and watch the finale from “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly“, Sergio Leone’s epic 1966 spaghetti Western that starred a young Clint Eastwood. For present-day Yankees purposes, the Good was Wednesday’s blowout win. The Bad was Tuesday’s come-from-ahead blowout loss. And the Ugly was Ivan Nova — who squandered a 5-0 lead on his way to allowing nine earned runs in five innings Tuesday — telling reporters after the game that he had his best stuff and was just the victim of bad baseball luck. (I was there. That better not be Nova’s best stuff.) Until tomorrow.
Good, Bad and Ugly
