    Anybody hear Jason Bay's new excuse?

    He claims because he has blue eyes, it is affecting his play during the day. 

    Of course, Mantle, Brett, and others had blue eyes, and they were better day players; especially surprising for Mantle, 'cause he was usually hung over.

    Well, his BA is a little higher at night, but only 35 points (223 vs 258).

    I think his problem is having men on base.  With no one on, he's batting .283 with a slugging pct of .413.  But when someone is on, he disappears - a BA of .190 and a slugging pct. of .220.  And god forbid someone is in scoring position - a BA of 160 and a slugging pct of 160.

    Sounds like someone is putting too much pressure on themselves with men on base.

     I like the guy, but I was happy to see him unloaded because he couldn't hit a breaking ball. Maybe wearing tinted contact lens would cure the problem!

    Jbay really ?

    the yanks must not have any blue eyes

    as they are the major-league-best 21-4 in day games

     as opposed to 23-27 at night

    they clearly are just to old to stay up for those night games

    Wade Boggs said that if you have less than 20/20, then hitting at night was worse than the day time.  He said that at night you use more of your eye (pupil is dialated to let in more light, which uses more of the lens) and if you have a problem with your vision, it'll be more pronounced.

    It seems to me that his problem us that his eyes get distracted with men on base.

    Just keep him away from the Dirty Harry gun; his hand-eye coordination has taken a "tumble".

    You missed a great thread today. BDC put a stop to it.

    No; basically insult trading; Burrito ended up on the short stick, not that that's so hard to do. We also had a few more Wakefield threads; the next thread started shall fill his punch ticket for a new car.

    Re: Anybody hear Jason Bay's new excuse?

    The part about the eyes could have some merit. My eyes are green, and I have more trouble with sunlight than people I know with brown eyes, or even hazel eyes. I never really thought about it as far as baseball players were concerned. I usually just wear sunglasses though. Couldn't he just do that? They seem to wear them in the outfield, although I'm not sure I've ever seen anyone wear them at the plate.
