It's still only the third week of the regular season. The Yankees didn't have the best of April's last year. This is all common knowledge that does nothing to really help make these losses any less frustrating to watch. The Yankees have left quite a bit of runners on base in the past few games. In the classic discussion of "most annoying ways to lose a game," RISP fail still definitely reigns supreme on my list. Failed bunt attempts and failed stolen base attempts just add more to the frustration. The 2015 Yankees were not good when it came to extra inning games. This is a trend that will hopefully not continue in 2016. Yesterday did not help to alleviate that concern.

Perhaps LTL and I should discuss this over nachos.
The Yankees did go, but they didn't baseball all that well.

That's exactly how I type.
Honorable Mod Mention
Tanya wins the HMM for having to wade through extra innings just to write about the Yankees losing.
