News and Rumors:
  • Jason Hernandez has been traded from Metrostars to Chivas USA as the player to be named later in the 1st pick trade.
  • Garber says a 2nd expansion team in THE MIDWEST will be announced in the next 60 days. My money is on Peter Wilt's Milwaukee bid.
  • Lots of Trades: Houston has traded a 2007 fourth round pick for a player to be named later. Rapids trade 2007 3rd selection and a conditional 2007 pick for players to be named later. Crew trades partial allocation to Revs in return for first pick of 2nd round of 2006 draft plus a 2007 draft pick.
  • FSC has a recap show tonight at midnight.
  • MLS Opening Day Schedule: April 1: Chicago at Dallas, Columbus at KC, Colorado at Houston, New England at LA April 2: MetroStars at DC, RSL @ Chivas USA
  • New jerseys pictures now on my flickr stream. MLSGear has drawings of the jerseys for pre-order
  • MetroStars select Marvell Wynne as the number 1 pick.
  • MLS gets a special edition of the world cup match ball, a 16-panel (rather than the normal 32-panel) ball. Goalkeepers will "love" this ball says Adidas -- more accuracy and faster flight should benefit strikers and playmakers alike. I love that Donovan, EJ, etc. will be playing with this ball for months before the rest of the world!
  • New Houston name, logo and jersey this coming Wednesday, 1/25.
  • Chivas trades number 1 pick to MetroStars for 5th pick and player to be named later.
  • Rumor: Eddie Gaven to Columbus for Edson Buddle, Columbus/Metrostars exchange first round draft pick order
  • Rumor: Eddie Johnson to KC for Josh Wolff
  • Rumor: Jesse Marsch to Chivas
  • Rumor: Wingert & Jordan to Colorado from Columbus for a conditional draft pick and third rounder.
  • Rumor: Borchers to Odd Grenland
  • Rumor: Cannon to Wizards
  • Rumor: Bradley to Heerenveen

MLS gets to be first to use the WC matchball. Also, you have to love the uncomfortable German trying to be cool.

Peter Wilt was on bigsoccer and he said that while they are still making progress in Milwaukee, they are targeting 2008 and the team mentioned is not milwaukee.
