Seattle Sluggers Announce Their Roster

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

1. GM Hikaru Nakamura: 2732
2. GM Gregory Serper: 2592
3. IM Eric Tangborn: 2455
4. FM Slava Mikhailuk: 2437
5. NM Michael Lee: 2314
6. FM John Readey: 2296
7. Joshua Sinanan: 2180


1. FM Marcel Milat: 2354

After a disappointing end to their 2007 season, the Sluggers have taken a stride to reclaim the great strength that they displayed in 2006, adding GM Nakamura to the campaign. With his explosive, tactical style in contrast to GM Serper's rock solid approach, the Sluggers have a good variety of top lineups to throw at their opponents. That change, along with the still improving young NM Lee, probably ready to now hold the reins on Board Three and allow the Sluggers to field both their GMs at once could well provide the spark needed to let Seattle make a return to the top in 2008.

When did Nakamura move to WA?

He moved to Vancouver a few months ago I believe.
