MLB Network will broadcast 2011 Taiwan All-Star Series

By

The MLB Network announced today that it will broadcast the five-game Taiwan All-Star Series from November 1-6. The schedule is right here; four of the five games start at 9pm ET. Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano are headlining the MLB Team now that Miguel Cabrera has withdrawn due to a sore shoulder. They’ll be teammates with former Yankees Phil Coke, Jose Veras, Mark Melancon, and (hah) LaTroy Hawkins, among others. Old buddy Chien-Ming Wang will start one game for the Chinese Taipei squad. Hooray for baseball in November.

    This is how it should be done, exhibition series right after the end of the season when everyone is fresh. I’m curious though, why Taiwan? What happened to the MLB/Japan series?

    How good is Taiwan’s league anyway? It can’t be better than Japan or Korea’s.
