Say it ain't so Cory, say it ain't so

Former major leaguer Cory Bailey and two other Taiwanese players were suspended by the Chinese Professional Baseball League for possible game fixing, according to a Taipei Times report.

The scandal erupted on Wednesday when prosecutors detained six T-Rex members — including the manager and coach — and four bookies for allegedly fixing 10 matches since March.

The Banciao Prosecutors’ Office said T-Rex executive director Shih Chien-hsin (施建新) has confessed to using a gangster ring to run the team and fix matches.

Bailey was released on NT$100,000 bail and catcher Chen Ker-fan (陳克帆) and central outfielder Chen Yuan-chia (陳元甲) were released on NT$50,000 bail yesterday each. All three were suspended indefinitely by the team.

Prosecutors have also filed a request to detain alleged gangsters Lin Bing-wen (林秉文), Lin Ting-yu (林霆祐), Lin Chia-ching (林家慶), Lin Ching-chang (林慶昌), as well as dmedia spokesman Kuo Teh-chih (郭德志) and assistant manager Wu Chao-hui (吳昭輝).

Pro baseball in Taiwan has had numerous problems with gamblers influencing the outcomes of games and even going as far to kidnap and threaten players before games.

There are about 32 NT to the $ so bail was just over $3,000. I hope he made enough on the games to pay it.
