(1) INTRODUCTION

-------------------------------------

This guide is for people who like myself do not own an action replay
and therefore cannot download other people's roster updates. I have
given already some time and dedication and hopefully this can enhance
your gaming experience.

--------------------------------------

(2) NEWS

--------------------------------------

25.03.04 Nice little update, added a release table under the teams
to make it easier for you guys. Can't wait to get official rosters
going.. it's hard to follow the minor league contracts. Anyway
hopefully next week I'll have a great lineup for TB and NYY :)

17.03.04 Happy St-Patrick's Day! My present to all of you fans out there
is a more complete guide, so less hassle of looking up for a player.
Unfortunately my xbox is suffering from "thompsonitis" a.k.a I have
a Thompson dvd-rom and it is currently bugging a lot while playing this
game it is the reason why it took me awhile before updating. It's a real
pain in the you know where and as of now I don't have enough money to
get a new system (unless someone wants to give me a new system :D)
wishful thinking I know. ENJOY the update!

10.03.04 I just bought the game and doing this in my free time
(aka at work) and therefore cannot make sure that every player in
my listing is true. For example I do know that Ivan Rodriguez is
located under Free Agents and not the Florida Marlins, but I believe
it would be easier if I were to name only the former teams all the time.
Therefore if you cannot find a certain person do not despair. Look
under free agents and their minor league affiliates. If you can't find
them anywhere than the player is not in the game. Hopefully I'll fix
this problem soon. Another possibility is to rename a AAA player with
the person in question.
