Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos took some time off to get LASIK surgery since then he’s hitting well (6-for-18 in seven spring training games). And, hey Wilson, have you lost weight? Looking good, my man!
“Could be eyes, could be weight,” manager Dusty Baker said. “He’s in the best shape of his life. I don’t know if it’s his eyes, but I know if you can’t see, you can’t hit.”
Less than two weeks of this stuff left before the rubber hits the road and the shape a player is said to be in is rather beside the point.
