The Major League Baseball season is upon us, and for the New York Yankees, it has evidently come a moment too soon.
The defending AL East champions fell in three straight contests to the hated Tampa Bay Rays, struggling in every facet of the game during the series at Tropicana Field.
The Yankees entered this season with high hopes after bolstering their starting rotation and ensuring some depth on their bench. Despite the belief that the Yanks had improved this offseason, their performance in the first three games of the season has raised some serious concerns going forward this season.
There are many question marks following such a disappointing showing, but the Yankees will be hoping a positive answer will arise as time carries on.
