By Bryan Rose

Do you quietly sit in bed every evening, clutching your favorite blanket, watching your favorite 80’s cartoon’s, quietly weeping that you have no Giants baseball to watch? Yeah, uh, me either. Weeeeird. But if you do – I’ve got fantastic news for you, well, assuming you have MLB Network because they’ll be broadcasting all five games of the 2011 Taiwan All-Star Series.
