"They were just exploring options," said Giants vice president of baseball operations Bobby Evans.Sadowski said that he heard of the Japan feeler only indirectly. When a reporter observed that pitching there might have seemed different, Sadowski said, "This is different, too. Six years playing in front of small crowds [in the Minor Leagues]; all of a sudden, you're playing in front of a sellout crowd in Milwaukee." Sadowski noted that his sudden success won't prompt him to alter his pitching routine.
"I'm not going to change, whether I throw here or [Triple-A] Fresno, or whether it would have been Japan," he said.One aspect of life that Sadowski did change was his text-message plan on his cellular phone account. He said he received 50 text messages in the wake of his first big league victory in the Giants' 7-0 decision at Milwaukee.
"I usually get five a month," he said.
