Update: Diamondbacks Could Open Season In Taiwan, Lose Two Home Games

We haven't heard too much about this for awhile so this news out of the Bay Area constitutes the latest:

If the series becomes a reality, the Giants still would play a full home schedule. The Diamondbacks would lose two home games because it's cheaper for Major League Baseball to compensate Arizona for lost gate receipts and other revenue.

Players are holding out for equal compensation for coaches and other members of the traveling party.
