Both Matt Wieters and rookie Blake Davis were intrigued by the report that an optometrist had backed up Texas Rangers star Josh Hamilton's contention that blue-eyed hitters have more trouble hitting in the daytime than at night.

Wieters is blue-eyed and Davis -- interestingly enough -- has one blue eye and one brown eye.

"So he should hit exactly the same in both day and night games,'' Wieters said.

Davis does not have a track record, but Wieters does hit better at night than in the day. His numbers aren't dramatically different, but his average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage are all higher -- the difference most noticeable in his strikeout/walk ratio and his slugging percentage.
