In case you weren't aware...There is a team of MLB players traveling around Taiwan at the moment, taking part in the Taiwan All-Star series, a five-game exhibition series against the Chinese Taipei national team. The Washington Nationals sent OF/1B Michael Morse, left-handed starter Ross Detwiler and right-hander Collin Balester to take part in the series on the MLB side. Nats' sinker-baller Chien-Ming Wang, (who is not technically the Nats' Chien-Ming Wang right now, having become a free agent on Sunday) is scheduled to pitch for the Taiwanese team, as he returns to action in his home country. The game is being aired on the MLB Network and MLB.tv on tape delay at 9:00 pm EDT. If you aren't going to watch, you can check out the results of the game HERE. If you're watching and want to talk Nats during the game, you can join the discussion (if there is one...anyone watching?) below.

• Here's the schedule for the five-game series and the MLB Network broadcasts.
