Scandal! Round 2

At least six more players are under investigation by the Panchiao District Prosecutor's Office for their role in the continuing match-fixing saga. All of these new suspects play for the Bears and have had their pay suspended. Curiously they have been allowed to continue training with the team. This probably has something to do with the fact that the team is  pretty short-handed at the moment, having already lost a dozen or so players from the first round of investigations.

Pitcher Wu Szu-yu was the first player interviewed by the authorities in this go-round. Wu began his career with the Bears in 2004, putting in three strong seasons with the team. He numbers earned the left-hander a contract in Japan with the Chiba Lotte Mariners in 2007. After playing two seasons with the Pacific League club, he returned to the Bears last year.
