Want China Times has a very strange story claiming that the Canberra Cavalry’s Matt Blazynski completely fabricated a match fixing approach during the team’s triumphant Asian Cup series.
“The lie and the article caused extremely serious damage to the 2013 Asia Series, the CPBL, baseball fans and those who work in baseball in Taiwan,” the league said.
The CPBL demanded in a letter to the ABL that the Australian league produce a letter of apology and publish the letter in the Canberra Times to clarify the matter.
Copies of the letter to the ABL were sent to the leagues’ counterparts in Japan, South Korea and Europe, which were also represented in the six-team tournament held Nov. 15-20.

The CPBL said that until its demand is met, it will put cooperation and exchange activities with the ABL on hold.
It’s hard to imagine why someone would make this up, rather easier to imagine why there would be a coverup.
