Another one bites the dust. The Chinatrust Whales are no more. Chinatrust has moved to disband the Whales in connection with game-rigging scandals associated with some of its players. The Whales join the dMedia T-Rex team in the CPBL garbage bin, leaving the league with just 4 teams. The league has been plagued by 3 game-rigging scandals in the last 10 years or so. I wonder, is this it for the league?
Taiwan has always had such a strong baseball character over the years, I wonder what the future holds for professional ball on the island.
Are there any CPBL fans around that can shed some light on the situation, what might happen moving forward?
