Tabata’s going to be keeping a journal with milb.com this season, in his first entry he writes:
Bobby [Abreu] taught me so much in big-league camp, that really helped a young kid like me adjust from A-ball, to big-league pitching and just being in that kind of environment.
He’s supposedly had some maturity issues in the past, hopefully Bobby knocked some sense into him. How crazy is it to think that of all the great players in big league camp with the Yanks this year, A-Rod was probably the only guy with more physical talent than Tabata.
In other new, it looks like Phil Hughes’ site has been shut down; now there’s just a message board.
