I am not able to watch this game because the price of internet in Australia which is so expensive for me, especially this game is played before midnight in Australia which is much more expensive than after midnight.
However, based on what I hear, read and know, I certainly can give some insight regard of state of Taiwanese baseball to you guys. In term of this tournament, we use a lot of young players to play this tournament that I like because they can gain a lot of experience.
For example, the starting pitcher for this game, a talent young pitcher, tell Taiwanese media after game he was affected by home plate umpire's strikezone. He was so frustrated to the point that affects his emotion and loses control. This certainly is something a lot of young pitchers have to go through. By the way, just in case you guys don't know the result, he gave up a gram slam in the first inning after putting guys on base by walks and hitting batters.
Offense is always the weakness of Taiwanese baseball game. We always have to win game by pitching well. Once pitchers don't pitch well, the chance of winning is not high at all for us to win ball game.
For the past 10 years, Taiwanese baseball have gone through a lot of problems. We get to the point we need to rebuild from the bottom in order to catch Japan or Korea. That's not something we can improve overnight. Concern about the result of WBC is certainly not the one to worry about right now in my opinion.
