It was the worst of times.

Jose Bautista has been an everyday player for the Blue Jays for 14 months.

And if you line up the months end to end and rank them by OPS, this April was the cruelest month of all.

Bautista hit .181 with three homers, 10 RBIs and a .634 OPS.

"I'm not worried about my batting average or my numbers in April," Bautista said. "When you're going bad, bad things happen. Like the other night against Seattle, I hit a double, the ball bounces over the fence and they send Kelly Johnson back to third when he would have scored.

"We'll talk about my numbers in October."

In six of the 14 months, Bautista has hit 10 or more homers.
