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.

    I forget- how did the Union lose their 1st round picks. Was that part of the package deal with Danny Mwanga for Jorge Perlaza or the Califf deal for Lahoud?

    Mikey Lopez falls to SKC? The rich get richer indeed.

    Also, I really can’t wait for the first Bayern/Dortmund matchup featuring Klopp vs. Guardiola.
