Miami Sharks Announce Their Roster

2008 Team Roster: (Miami has not decided which rating list to use. Aug 08 listed below)

1. GM Julio Becerra: 2640
2. FM Bruci Lopez: 2486
3. FM Marcel Martinez: 2469
4. FM Osmanys Perea: 2453
5. IM Blas Lugo: 2393
6. FM Charles Galofre: 2326
7. NM Eric Rodriguez: 2238

The familiar faces for Miami return for them in the 2008 campaign after a roller coaster season which saw them struggle badly early only to make a remarkable run into the League Semifinals. Also having several new faces, including former Kingfisher FM Lopez, will undoubtedly give Miami a good amount of options for their second and third boards, spots where they've somewhat struggled in the past couple of seasons. If they can find a way to adequately balance this newfound freedom there, while also doing the same with their bottom board (as of now, given the high ended nature of their roster, they have don't have many options for that spot), then with two time MVP GM Becerra leading them, the Sharks will definitely be a strong force throughout 2008.
