And Then There Were Four???

The CPBL in all likelihood will lose another team. The Chinatrust Whales are expected to be the second casualty in less than a month (after the T-Rex team was expelled last month). Several Whales players were involved in a gambling scandal last year, that resulted in the expulsion of several star players. There are also suspicions that some Whales players were involved in this year's match-fixing scandal. It's no wonder that multiple top players from the Whales have been linked recently to overseas teams.

This gambling situation is really sad to the fans in Taiwan. I don't see how they put up with this.

My question is CPBL losing both team for good? If so that's going to be a small league. I also like the reference to And Then There Were Three the Genesis album, I don't know if that was your intention with the title name but I like it.

Based on the teams as we know it (with current players, managament, and ownership), yes.
