BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 Tadano pitched better in Cleveland than would have been expected given his rock'em-sock'em results at Buffalo. A bulging disk ended his season in early September. Fortunately, that's the only part of Tadano that's publicly bulging these days.
2004 Tadano was one of the best amateur talents in Japan, but his appearance in a porn film apparently didn't fly there. The Tribe stepped into the breach, signing him for $67,000. Maybe it's because we live in a world where everyone's seen Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson, but he discussed it frankly with each of his new sets of teammates with each promotion. To the general credit of the open-mindedness of the young, nobody was upset. And why not? He deals heat in the low 90s and has four pitches he can throw for strikes. As some argue was the case with Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey, it could just be that the Indians wanted a good baseball player.
