Let’s Make A Deal, Toronto Style

It seems as though Toronto just wants to keep making deals until their next game. Busy week already for the expansion side as they have signed players, traded for players for allocation, and now trading players for other players.

Crazy happenings so far. I don’t know the full extent of details on the exact deal going on but it appears that they have dealt for a young defender, apparently who is 25 years old and a first round draft pick for possibly midfielder Richard Mulrooney. A player who they traded for only a couple weeks ago. Crazy!

From my guessing, the possibly 25 year old defenders in this league that they could be going for are (some are 25 and some are around that age…this is based on the DOB MLSnet gave):

Gonzalo Segares (Chicago)
Ugo Ihemelu (Colorado) …I believe he is 25
Chris Wingert (Colorado)
Clarence Goodson (Dallas)
David Wagenfuhr (Dallas)
Alex Yi (Dallas)
Bobby Boswell (DC)
Facundo Erpen (DC) – I highly doubt this one though
Kevin Goldthwaite (Houston)
James Riley (New England)
Jeff Parke (NY)

More details to come…

    This is a serious effort to stop the bleeding, and they should continue it. Toronto passed on picking up GK Jon Busch after he was dropped by the Crew, only to see that Greg Sutton is not performing as well as they hoped. The team is giving up a lot of chances and the goalkeeping can't make up for it. It's a bad situation for TFC, reminiscent of Chivas USA's inaugural season. That is the price an expansion team pays, though. MLS is getting better which means it will not be easy for expansion teams to win matches their first year in.
