Hunter not a fan of April slumps
CLEVELAND -- It's common for players to quip how they would prefer to endure a rough stretch at the start of the season than at any other juncture on the schedule.

In many players' minds, an abysmal April is preferable to a sluggish September.

Angels outfielder Torii Hunter, on the other hand, has no patience for slow starts. The Angels have dropped 15 of 22 to open the season.

"I'd rather go through it during the season," Hunter said. "You always want to get off to a great start. Everybody does. But I have faith that it's going to turn around. We have a bunch of veteran guys that can focus. Right now, things aren't going our way."
