Tabata’s latest journal entry over at milb.com is up. It sure sounds like the whole Clemens experience went well.
Here’s the latest entryÂ from Tabata’s milb.com Player Journal. It’s chock full o’Â good stuff; IÂ especially found his batting practice approach interesting. Â
…husband and father? Of two???Â From his milb.com Player Journal:
I haven’t spent too much time seeing Tampa — my wife and I generally stay home when I’m not playing. We’re expecting twins this winter, and my mother will come to help out.
Damn yo, guess he’s living theÂ life of a normal 18 yr old,Â huh?Â
Speaking of husbands and the such, congrats goes out to Alex and Emily for
driving off the cliff walking off the plank getting hitched. Homer Simpson said it the best: marriage is a coffin, and every kid is another nail.
Just kidding on that last part, but in all seriousness, congrats and here’s to the long happy and healthy life ahead of them.
(hat tip to JamesÂ for the Tabata link)
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.
