A clue in today's Daily News puzzle is "React, just barely." The answer is BATANEYE. I know that "bat an eye" is a common expression, and I suppose it's possible---albeit gruesome---that someone could remove one of his eyes from its socket and hit it with a baseball bat, but otherwise it is not possible to bat an eye. We bat our eyelids or eyelashes.
