Our RISP woes...

The A's have left at least 10 runners on base in every game except the 11-2 loss to TB.  Twice they've exceeded 20.  In that extra inning loss against TB, they left a mind boggling 25 men (and scored all of 2 runs).  And in the last game of that series (the 6-1 win) should have been a laugher, with 21 men LOB.  So clearly, things are not going their way.

It'd be easy to attribute a lot of that to just bad luck and saying that it'll even out over the aggregate, but least seasons the A's should have scored about 50 more runs then they actually did according to the numbers.  So you can't really cite small sample size, seeing as this is not just the past eight games, but the the past 170.

So my question is: lack of "clutch hitting," bad situational hitting, or just truly, truly horrendous luck?
