With the team taking on the Netherlands today (the 13th), news has it that veteran CPBL slugger Tai-Shan Chang has tested positive for a banned substance - he is not in the starting lineup for today's game.

Lefty Wei-Yin Chen is starting as the game is scoreless in the 2nd.

Taiwan blanked Netherlands 5-0 in their Olympics opener. Chen Wei-Yin pitched 7 strong innings giving up 3 hits while punching out 7. Let's hope the victory will provide a huge momentum going into tomorrow's match up against Japan! Jia-Yo!

Tarzan doesnt seem like the type of guy that would use steroids or anything. Maybe it was medication or something like last time when Kuo came up positive as well but it turned out it was the medicine he was taking. BTY, Kuo picked up the W today and is now 4-2 with an ERA of 1.70. sucks for our Palomino team. I hate losing in the championships. Please keep us updated on the Bronco Team in the championships against Panama.
