Can Burrell SEE the ball?

It's an easy enough philosophy. In order to hit the ball, you better be able to see it. Longtime Philadelphia Daily News columnist/staff writer Paul Hagen delved into this issue in an interesting read in the Monday edition.

Is it possible that Burrell's problems at the plate come from poor vision? Players do take simplistic eye exams during Spring Training, but even Mike Arbuckle wonders aloud if a more professional, thorough eye exam would help the Phillies left-fielder in the long run.

Is this a possibility? Does Pat the Bat have problems "seeing" the ball out of the pitcher's hand?

Sound off below.
