|He'll wear sunglasses at night
Brian McCann owners are no doubt holding their breath as they pray that their catcher will come back soon, and the story about his rehab assignment in yesterday's Atlanta-Journal Constitution may give them some hope. Greater detail, however, can be found in Chop-n-Change's interview with McCann's agent, B.B. Abbot this morning:
Brian has been fitted for some custom Oakleys that he will begin wearing in games in Gwinnett on Wednesday night. If everything goes well, he will meet the team Friday in Philadelphia, which is the day he is eligible to come off the DL. If things do not go well with the Oakleys, he will more than likely undergo a Lasik surgery to get his eyes back to where they were prior to the season. Re-enhancements are very common so either scenario is a comfortable situation. He simply wants to try to get back in the line-up as quickly as possible, and there is a chance that the Lasik surgery could delay his return because of vision recovery time.
And nothing is cooler than a pair of Oakleys. Quick, Brian: grow a mullet!
Abbott is also Chipper Jones' agent and he takes the opportunity to fill us in about whether the switch hitting Jones golfs righty or southpaw. Because I know you all were dying to know.
