The latest update on the CPBL scandal, via Taiwan News:

After the Banciao District Prosecutors’ Office confirmed Tuesday that he had been released on bail of NT$80,000 last week, the La New Bears immediately announced they were expelling him from the team and would sue for compensation.

Chang has denied from start to finish that he ever accepted money to lose games, reports said. When prosecutors cast an eye on his purchases of expensive cars, he claimed he lent money from the game-fixing group to buy the vehicles, but prosecutors were considering indicting him for defrauding the group because he accepted their money but did nothing in return, media reported.

    Amazing another scandal to hit the CPBL. Its hard to imagine how the league survives all these scandals and the damage to the league’s reputation after the big scandal a few years back. Its really quite sad for baseball in Taiwan and for the former Yomiuri Giant I believe.
