Lamigo Monkeys lineup predictions

  1. RF 陽耀勳 (Yang Yao-Hsun)
  2. 2B 郭嚴文 (Kuo Yen-Wen)
  3. CF 王柏融 (Wang Po-Jung)
  4. DH 林泓育 (Lin Hung-Yu)
  5. LF 朱育賢 (Chu Yu-Hsien)
  6. 1B 陳俊秀 (Chen Chun-Hsiu)
  7. 3B 林智平 (Lin Chih-Ping)
  8. SS 林承飛 (Lin Cheng-Fei)
  9. C 嚴宏鈞 (Yen Hung-Chun)

Lamigo Monkeys probable starters

  1. Zeke Spruill
  2. Darin Downs
  3. Zack Segovia
  4. 王溢正 (Wang Yi-Cheng)
  5. Zeke Spruill
  6. Darin Downs


  • 1 game advantage going into this Taiwan Series.
  • The 3 foreign starting pitchers (Zeke Spruill, Darin Downs and Zack Segovia).  The trios have been one of the major contributors to Monkeys success in 2017 regular season.  Monkeys will be looking to emulate that success in the Taiwan Series.
  • The lineup with no weakness.  Power, Speed and Contact, Monkeys have all 3 of those areas covered.  Expect a big inning if not careful when facing Monkeys lineup.


  • The team might be cold going into this Taiwan Series.  Monkeys played their last regular season game on 11 October.  And only had 2 intersquad games leading up the the Taiwan Series

Chinatrust Brothers lineup predictions

  1. 3B 王威晨 (Wang Wei-Chen)
  2. SS 吳東融 (Wu Tung-Jung)
  3. DH 周思齊 (Chou Szu-Chi)
  4. LF 詹子賢 (Chan Tzu-Hsien)
  5. CF 張志豪 (Chang Chih-Hao)
  6. RF 陳子豪 (Chen Tzu-Hao)
  7. 1B 彭政閔 Peng Cheng-Min
  8. C 林明杰 (Lin Ming-Chieh)
  9. 2B 潘萣翔 (Pan Ting-Hsiang)

Chinatrust Brothers probable starters

  1. Bryan Woodall
  2. Orlando Roman
  3. Rick Teasley
  4. 鄭凱文 (Cheng Kai-Wen)
  5. Bryan Woodall
  6. Orlando Roman


  • Foreign starting pitchers.  With Bryan Woodall known for his pitching efficiency, Brothers will try to get him pitching into 7th or even 8th before activate their bullpen.  If Woodall’s slider is working, expect to see Monkeys lineup struggle to score against him.
  • A hungry young team that’s eager to showcase themselves to the management team.  Plenty of speed on this squad.
  • There’s less pressure on this young squad too, as nobody expect them to win the Taiwan Series, which can be used as their advantage.
  • Able to turn the game around with a swing of the bat.  Several players in the squad are known for their power in the 2017 season.
  • Been in game-mode for weeks before going into Taiwan Series.  Team spirit is in all time high after beating Uni-Lions in the Playoff Series.


  • Lack of Taiwan Series experience.
  • Very young bullpen.  Several of them just turned pro this year.  Are they able to handle the postseason stress?  Or able to handle Lamigo Monkeys lineup?
