Taiwan, no Chinese Taipei, no Nationalist China, no Formosa, ... whatever the island off of China names its WBC team
by Bob Timmermann
I will go with Taiwan since that's what's in the URL. Chien-ming Wang's participation is still up in the air.
The Taiwanese do lead the world in cool nicknames. Jia-hsien "The Taiwan Plumber" Hsieh, Tai-Shan "The Jungle Prince" Chang, Cheng-ming "Cha Cha" Peng, Chun-chang "The Invincible Robotman" Yeh, and Chien-Ming "Fire Brother" Chang.
Sultan of Swat, Splendid Splinter, Mr. October, and now The Taiwan Plumber.
