Bulls Fined For Shafting Yeh

The Sinon Bulls were fined NT$1.5 million by the Taipei City Labor Board for their "unfriendly attitude" toward player Yeh Chun-chang.

Basically what seems to have happened is that Yeh was fired for his involvement with the players union. Not content with just releasing him, the Bulls attempted to get him blacklisted by announcing that he had "moral and disciplinary problems". This smear tactic temporarily scared off the Elephants, who had shown an interest in signing the player.

But now the matter seems to be closed. Yeh has joined the Elephants, and has just been re-elected as a director of the players union. The Bulls have lost a veteran catcher and a fair bit of cash.
