The MLS Draft goes down today in Indianapolis. (Despite the billing, this is not a SuperDraft. You tell me Falcao is available today, I’ll change my mind.)
But it’s the player movement around this shapes the team a little bit more.
The news–graded by TSG–in the past week:
» B+: Mike Fucito to the San Jose Earthquakes for the 34th pick today.
» B: Jeff Larentowicz to the Chicago Fire.
» C-: Real Salt Lake re-sign Javy Morales to be their #10 pulling the strings.
» A: Rich Balchan in camp for the Chicago Fire after battling injuries the past two years in Columbus.
» TBD: The New England Revs trade-up to the 1st pick in the draft.
» A+: Robbie Keane re-signs a multiyear deal in Los Angeles
» B+: Juninho earns a permanent transfer to the Los Angeles Galaxy.
» C: Robbie Findley re-signs in Real Salt Lake after having his contract terminated by Nottingham Forest
» A-: Chilean winger Kevin Harbottle signs with the Colorado Rapids.
» B: Joel Lindpere is traded to the Chicago Fire from the Red Bulls for an international slot.
» A+: The Chicago Fire loan Alvaro Fernandez out to a Qatari league club.
