Whales No More...

*The Chinatrust Whales have officially folded, leaving the league with only 4 teams. All players have been unconditionally released from the organization. Read more here and here.*Updated

Another say sad day for CPBL fans.

*The Uni-President 7-Eleven Lions open the Asia Series on Thursday against the CBA champions - the Tianjin Lions (no All-Star team this year). Expected to start the game for the Lions is Cheng-Feng Lin.
On Friday, the Lions will face the NPB champs - the Seibu Lions.
Saturday's game will match the Lions against the KBO champs - the SK Wyverns.
The Lions will look to improve on last year's 1-2 showing (9-5 win against the China Stars, 4-2 loss to the Chunichi Dragons, 13-1 loss to the SK Wyverns).
The SK Wyverns and Seibu Lions are the heavy favorites to play in the championship game on Sunday 11/16. Expect Wei-Lun Pan and Luther Hackman to start against the KBO and NPB champs.

CMW is home and he says that he will not be available for the WBC in '09.
