Maybe April isn't Carl Crawford's month

I read on mlb.com a Red Sox fan pleading to give Carl Crawford a chance. This fan also pointed out David Ortiz has had some dreadful Aprils (although Papi probably gets a discount with fans because he helped bring home two World Series trophies).

So, I looked it up. The guy has a point. April is NOT (generally) Crawford's month. August is. Have a look after the jump... 

Carl Crawford batting averages in months beginning with the letter "A".

      APRIL   AUGUST

2011   .137      ???

2010   .337    .245

2009   .283    .293

2008   .289     .304

2007    .270   .388

2006   .269      .327

2005   .262    .318

2004   .329    .252

2003   .254    .301

Clearly, THIS April is MUCH worse than Crawford's usual less-than-stellar Aprils past...but in just two seasons out of nine (since becoming an everyday starter) has Boston's new left fielder had what anybody would call a HOT START. In fact, this April is nearly HALF of Crawford previous worse April...batting average-wise.
