So it turns out that there is nothing wrong with David Ortiz's vision.
Big Papi, at a loss for why he is hitting less than .200 with only two home runs this season, is turning over every stone to try to find the source of his woes. That included a trip to the eye doctor on Monday.
His vision checked out "very well" during an examination Monday, and the Boston Red Sox designated hitter was given drops for dry eyes, team spokesperson Pam Ganley said.
Well at least they gave him some eye drops to make him feel better.
But while some are having fun with Papi's trip to the eye doctor, even creating a humorous eye chart for the big slugger, others are pointing to statistics that suggest there might not be anything wrong at all.
As for the Red Sox, they seem far more concerned with finding shortstop help.
