Photo: Creative Commons License The month of April is a weird month. Players can either come out firing and have the backing of fans through the early-going or they can stumble for the first few weeks and critics come out in droves trying to dissect their every move. (Heck, I even did it to Ichiro in an article last week.) So here we are in the last three days of April with May staring...
