I usually don't cover too much on the CPBL, but thought that this would be a good time to run down on how some of the notables are doing over there.
First of all, team standings through 5/5/06
All in all, pretty even competition in the first half of the season.
Now for a brief round-up of notables (through 5/5/06):
Chin-Feng Chen .338 5 HR's 12 RBI's - currently out with abdominal strain
Chih-Sheng Lin .256 2 HR's 14 RBI's
Tai-Shan Chang .364 8 HR's 20 RBI's
Chien-Fu Yang 2W-2L 4.66 ERA 38.2 IP/28 K's
Chih-Yuan Chen .239 2 HR's 10 RBI's
Chia-Hsien Hsieh .247 6 HR's 19 RBI's
En-Yu Lin 3W-2L 1.47 ERA 43 IP/40 K's
Wei-Lun Pan 4W-2L 2.21 ERA 53 IP/36 K's
