*CPBL 2007/2008 #1 pick Yi-Chuan Lin told the media that he does not want to play for the Sinon Bulls (the team that picked him with the first overall pick in the draft). Lin is expected to finish his military service in Feb. of next year - at which time contract negotiations can begin between Lin and the Bulls. Lin's reasons for his statements are based on the fact that he doesn't feel that he'll have a good future & stability with the Sinon Bulls and the CPBL. He would rather play baseball for an amateur baseball club - Taiwan Power (the country's electricity company), which would have a lifetime guaranteed salary of at least 40,000 NT per month with possible promotions within the company after retirement from baseball.

Kuo Update - No blood clots in his throwing arm


The Yomiuri Giants released RHP Chien-Ming Chiang. Per Chiang, his delivery was modified multiple times by the coaching staff - and as a result he couldn't regain his feel for pitching with the new delivery. He will likely return to Taiwan and play in the CPBL.
