2. Introduction

     This Roster Update FAQ has been put together for those, like myself, who 
do not gave a gameshark or other means of downloading Roster Updates. I have 
put a lot of work into this guide to make your gaming experience better.  This
guide can be used to help to update your MVP Baseball 2003 (herein 'MVP') from
it's January 23, 2003 Rosters to a roster as current as it can possibly be.

     The first version of this FAQ will contain all Transactions that have
occured in Major League Baseball since the cutoff date for this game.
Periodically, (mostly once or twice a week, less after the trading deadline),
this will be updated.  After the first version, all updates will go into the 
new transaction section, for those who have all of the old roster moves
completed and just want the new ones, and into the All Roster changes section,
for those who are using the guide for the first time.  Please note, some of
the players may not be in the game, but I am including them here incase
somebody has created a CAP of them.  The only transactions I have omitted are
those of people who were sent down to the minor league camp during spring 
training.  Also, some players that I have listed as 'activate' may already be
on the active roster in your game, but may have been on the DL in reality, and
some demotions may have been players who filled that injured players spot, and 
may already be on the inactive roster.  Keep in mind, that alot of the player
mentioned in the guide may not actually be in the game, and other may not need
the transactions I have written, because EASports may have compensated for
injuries or other circumstances.

     I would recommend that the first thing you do is remove all the players 
that I have indicated, then add them all to their proper teams.  Then you can
go team by team and Activate players as you so choose.
