Once upon a time.... in a galaxy far far away... ...
or rather, not so far away.
In a new league, the Washington D.C. Rattlers set up shop and get ready for action and a battle to the death, and by death I mean paying $30 watching a bunch of guys hit and toss balls around.
Sanji Watsuki takes the manager position and gets ready for battle. His goal? World domination. It starts with a baseball team, then a baseball stadium, then the suburbs, THEN THE AREA SURROUNDING THE SUBURBS! One step at a time the world would grow to learn and fear his name, but for now they would just ridicule him for his poor coaching skills and possibly ground breaking moves, and by ground breaking I mean literally destroying the ground they walk on and make them all fall into a large pit.
If you understood anything of what I say you need to get out more.

1B Gary Shearer
RF Enrico Fernandez
CF Jamie Fennone
C Tarabino Rick
3B Steve Coldiron
Bench (GASP AGAIN)C Darron Schneider
Notes: Defensive liability
IF Rudolph Bloye
Notes: Defensive liability
OF Jason Nickels
RF Bruce Waterston
SS Dean Lewis
CF Oscar Norello
AAA (Crowd is catching its breath)RF Phillip Crase
Notes: Poor player, not worth keeping around.
CF Glenn Peterson
Notes: Already has outstanding speed on the bases but has the potencial to put up big offensive numbers in the future.
3B Ramon Sibrian
Notes: Currently a superior 3B than our current lineup player, however we want to keep him in AAA until his skills develop a bit more. Expect to see him playing everyday by next year.
1B Karl Samuel
Notes: Decent all around player but far inferior to our current 1B.
AA1B Stephen Shaffer
Notes: Projected to be a very powerful run producer in the future.
LF Jason Cook
Notes: Excellent defensively and will turn out to be an excellent hitter that can hit for power and contact.
C Kyle Britt
Notes: Has the potencial to be our starting catcher in a few years.
RF Joaquin Linda
Notes: Has an excellent eye for the ball. Should turn out to be a decent power hitter in the future.
1B Zach Stevens
Notes: Not even a serviceable bench player. Possible spy for the F.B.I., will look into it later.
1B Rodney Theriault
Notes: No problems defensively but he has a poor eye and is slow on the baselines. Should become a fair power hitter.
CF Roger Dawson
Notes: He is still quite green but when he hits his peak should tear up the baselines and smash the ball out of the park often.
AOF Tom Limond
Notes: Most likely will become an average player all around. I project him to be a bench player for us in the future.
1B Ted Chappell
Notes: Excellent defensively. Only time will tell for his offense though.
SS Felipe Feria
Notes: Almost as average as they can get. 70 all around. Should turn into an excellent well rounded player.
RF John Pickering
Notes: He will mostly likely be trade bait in the future.
DLSS Arto Halais
DL: 215 days
Notes: Should become a serviceable infielder once he gets off the DL.
OF Phil Wilcock
Notes: Excellent outfielder, excellent contact hitter, excellent base stealer, and he is on the DL. Those people at the United Nations are up to this...
In the next episode of D.C. Rattlers!...
Sanji's favorite socks go missing and he blames the president!
