Re: The Soccer Thread

When you think MLS has reached peak weird with "blind draws" for marquee players, they're always able to raise the bar.

Btw, Twellman is reporting the allocation order swap Colorado did with Chicago is to acquire Ale Bedoya as a DP.

Re: The Soccer Thread

I don't know anything about college soccer, but the dude Chicago just drafted number one, Jack Harrison, is supposed to be real deal holyfield.

Re: The Soccer Thread

We need someone who knows the player pool, not a big name.

That said, I'd still be thrilled.

There are going to be a lot of elite club jobs open (Madrid, Bayern, United, City) so he'll have better options.

Abby Wambach is a great American. She's on Bill Simmons' podcast today and when asked what one thing she'd do to improve US Soccer, she said fire Jurgen.

Re: The Soccer Thread

I'm assuming Jordan Morris's college career is over, where does he go next? Seattle. They need him, bad. I'm curious to what offers he might get over in Europe? $175,000 is the cap he will get with Seattle right? I don't know what the new allocations will mean for him, but as I understand it, that ...

The MLS players union lost the last CBA so badly that the owners just gave back $37,000,000 through non-DP mechanisms.

Re: Jason Heyward - 2016 CF?

Yes, and Jason Heyward is possibly the best defensive outfielder of the 21st century I think I'd pump the brakes on that until he plays more than a handful of games at a premium defensive position. i'm willing to accept it if it's meant in terms of his specific outfield position like saying some cr...

Pham will spell, but yes, he's the main starter. If Heyward returns and Grichuk is injured, he would play CF and Moss/Piscotty would play right, Adams at first.

Jay for Gyorko + $7mil cash looks like the final terms.

Spotlight Very, very good movie. It's about the Boston Globe's investigation into the Catholic Church's molestation cover-up. It's obviously an important compelling story, but beyond that, the movie is so satisfying on every level. The direction is great, the script is great, the actors are great an...

Playing him as a back when he's scoring for fun in the Bundesliga and Champions League is not really a luxury the national team can afford. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7gwpuXZNqU Portland v Columbus in MLS Cup is an awesome soccer matchup but the league has ...
