I don't read the Sporting News all that much, but their latest weekly wrap-up revealed some interesting news on new Dodgers pitcher Chin-Hui Tsao (my emphasis in bold non-italic font):
The team has a counterpart to lefty Hong-Chih Kuo, having signed righthander Chin-Hui Tsao, whose aborted closer career ended with being non-tendered by Colorado. Like Kuo, Tsao is a one-time Taiwanese phenom signed for big bucks before injury derailed him. After coming off Tommy John surgery, he had shoulder surgery in May of 2005 and hasn't pitched in a game since, but the Dodgers will take the chance that he can come back the way Kuo has from two Tommy John procedures.
"One-time Taiwanese"? The Dodgers should make sure they discover Tsao's other nationality (nationalities?), as part of their outreach marketing to Los Angeles' diverse ethnic communities.
I'm hoping Tsao is part-Persian, myself.
