As we all remember, Brian McCann went through a brief time in his career when he was having problems with his vision and tried wearing glasses/goggles before finally having Lasix (Lasik?) surgery and getting his vision corrected. Since that time, he has seemed to return to his normal hitting prowess. Which is far ABOVE "normal", of course!
BUT... we probably also all remember him getting "Three Stooged" right in the eye by Michael Bourn a little while ago after that clutch homer. Ever since then, Big Mac does NOT look like himself at all at the plate. Taking a ton of good pitches and not hitting the ball well at all.
I am not an eye doctor, and I have never had Lasix/k surgery... so I have no clue if a finger in the eye can permanently mess up the results of that surgery. Does anyone else know more about this? And more importantly, does anyone else have more inside knowledge of the team so that we can find out for sure whether or not Big Mac can see as well as was a few weeks ago? Thanks!
