Cubs Sign Pitcher from Taiwan.....

The Cubs inked their third kid from Taiwan: RHP Hsin-Hong Tsai from Chiayi County's Tong-Shi HS. He follows his predecessors: Hong-Wen Chen and Chih-Hsiang Wen (has since been released). Tsai stands 6'0'' & is listed at 177 pounds (may be closer to ~150 pounds). His pitching repertoire includes a FB that tops out at 90 (sits around 86-89), below avg breaking stuff, below avg command, decent arm action, - he has some projectability. The Cubs beat out the Twins by signing him for $130k.

Excellent! This is a dream come true. Is it possible that we might eventually see an end to "All Yankees All the Time" coverage?

Go Cubs! Next Year Is This Year!!
