Revered Legend in Taiwan.....

*Sadaharu Oh is visiting the island for 6 days. He was originally scheduled to come to Taiwan in January.

*The Brother Elephants have resorted to signing foreign players since they are having trouble reaching an agreement with pick Chin-Hui Tsao. The latest pickup: 洋投昂斯 (Lyons?)

The Lions signed P Mickey Callaway.

*In addition to his tryout with the Hanshin Tigers, RHP Kai-Wen Cheng will also work out for the Nippon Ham Fighters

*C Kun-Sheng Lin received some praise from the NT coaching staff for his defensive prowess during these past few days. Lin, who was in LA in December, did not receive an offer higher than $100 K from ML teams.

*RHP Sung-Wei Tseng had a 90 pitch bullpen session while RHP Yu-Cheng Liao had a 100 pitch session.

*After looking over some of the pics of the NT in training, I almost didn't recognize Cubs minor leaguer Hong-Wen Chen. The kid has put on a lot of weight since 2005.
