Freeman eye injury isn’t serious

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is being treated for a “very fine” corneal abrasion in his right eye and could be available as soon as Tuesday night’s game, general manager Frank Wren said.

Freeman had blurred vision during Monday’s game against Cincinnati and left after the seventh inning of the 3-1 loss.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said after the game that the problem had only cropped up Monday and that Freeman tried two different pairs of contact lenses without any relief before leaving the game.

He was examined by the team’s eye specialist late Monday.

“It’s a very fine corneal abrasion,” Wren said Tuesday. “We’ll check him again this afternoon. The eye heals so fast. He could be available tonight or take another day, but it won’t be much longer than that.”

yeah we had to get an eye specialist for our resident fatty (who also has bad eyes)…just a side benefit for the other players :P

We probably have a cardiologist on staff for McCann as well.

The eyes are the most important organ the players have. Bad eyesight equal poor contact with the baseball. They should have an eye specialist on duty. Good news about Freddie!

Tiger – why do you feel compelled to make fun of McCann and his weight? Are you the picture of perfect health?

Need an eye specialist for Uggla to see the he needs to cover second base. I mean, what else does he have to do. Oh, stand there.

Thank you TripleThreat. The runners were moving on the play so Pastornicky should have gone to first. We need to have a Talent specialist to teach Chad Durbin how to not suck so bad.

I would suggest that most teams are probably contracted with some kind of local optometrist.

I would just like to know if the Braves have a proctologist on staff for “the old guy”.

Most are taught at an early level, that the play should have gone to first base. However, players should also be taught to not stand there and assume. Uggla had nothing else to do, so at 13.3 mil a year, run and cover the damn base. There could have been a bobble and the play might have to go elsewhere. Better safe than sorry. If nothing else, Uggla should have been yelling “1″ not just standing there, flexing his muscles.

He’s not fat. He’s just big-boned. And I’m pretty sure your ass can’t do a quarter of what McCann’s can on the ball field, so you might want to reserve judgement. I mean, unless this is Johnny Bench or someone like that, in which case, hack away.

3-2 count and 2 outs the runners are moving..groundball to short ; the play is at 1B

Wouldn’t have mattered if Uggla would have covered the base since the runners were moving on the 3-2 pitch, there was no play there at all as the runner was already at the base when Pastornicky’s toss went flying to no one. On a 3-2 count with 2 outs, you don’t cover the bag. Pastornicky made the error and knows he should have gone to first. Uggla has to stay put until the ball was hit, but he was playing more in the hole. He started moving towards second and wasn’t just standing there, but that’s not the point. The play is always at 1st. That was the only play. Tyler messed up and he knows it. We all move on. As for McCann, he lost 20 pounds again this offseason and doesn’t look fat at all, not sure where that came up. It’s not like he takes ice cream breaks with Livan between innings. Go Braves!

Pastornicky made a rookie mistake. We are still in good hands in the future at Shortstop though. Go Braves!!! P.S. We would have lost the game anyway with or without The Preacher’s error.

“The eyes are the most important organ the players have.”

Ya sure about that!?! LOL!! Sorry, I couldn’t resist… love the username, BTW!

“Uggla should have been yelling “1″ not just standing there, flexing his muscles.”

How do you know that he wasn’t?

The play was at first, and as Pastornicky said… “no excuses”. A rookie mistake, plain and simple… not his first and more than likely, not his last.
