  • It does read awkward by way of western familiarity, but it is a forgivable, culturally respectful error if it was really an error. In Chinese, surnames are written first followed by given names.

  • “Wang Chien-ming won his fifth consecutive game”.
    he took an ND 3 starts ago against the sox, i’m guessing that would make the 5 wins non-consecutive.

  • Of course, it wasn’t his fifth consecutive win either. Unless that’s the really big error. But this stuff happens all the time. Remember when ESPN erroneously called Schilling a former Cy Young award winner?

    I see; that makes sense. Apologies to Paul for my lack of depth.

  • All I know is that it’s not hard, a. To Google a guy’s name, and b., Check his gamelogs in the first three weeks of the season.
    I’m pretty sure Reuters has access to the Interwebs, even in Europe.
