Orioles' Burres has eye surgery
Still haven't heard from the Schmucker, but I've done 7 blogs in the past 17 hours. It's not that hard after all. I don't know why he's complaining about how hard he's working.
I spoke to left-hander Brian Burres at the fan rally Wednesday and he said that he had gotten LASIK eye surgery earlier this offseason. Burres, who was miffed by his struggles last year, knows that his location will have to be far better to maintain a major league roster spot in ‘09. But being able to see the catcher’s signs won’t hurt either. He admitted that his vision was so bad last year that his catcher at times had to use different signs just so he’d be able to see them.
