Uni-Lions’ Injured List Reached 23 Players
Whatever baseball gods the Uni-Lions are praying to, it is simply not working. After the game on May 5, the Uni-Lions lost another two key players to their ever-growing injured list, which brings the total injured count to an alarming 23 players.
Just how bad is this injury bug situation? To give some context, the Uni-Lions currently have 63 players in their organisation. That is almost 37% of its player currently being sidelined due to injuries, and this is only counting the “reported injuries” in the news.
Solutions to this problem? Better trainers? Pray more? Exorcism? Burn one of the Uni-Lions cheerleaders? I do not have the answer to it, but what I do know is, if they keep up this injury rate, the Uni-Lions are going to run out of players.
Might have to go down the "Shireen Baratheon" route to solve this problem, I guess they just have to burn one of the Uni-Girls the The Wicker Man style while singing the the "Tum Ba" rally song. pic.twitter.com/S8J7cOtArB

And Yankees fans are complaining about all their injuries, not as many as the Uni Lions.
Pretty much lost their chance at winning the first-half season. Don’t think I ever seen a CPBL team have that much injury within such short amount of time.
