San Jose took the first step in rebuilding their club. They have selected 10 players from existing MLS clubs.

  • Ivan Guerrero– Chicago
  • Jason Hernandez – Chivas USA
  • Chris Pozniak-Toronto FC
  • Ned Grabavoy– Columbus
  • Brian Carroll – DC United
  • Clarence Goodson -FC Dallas
  • Ryan Cochrane – Houston
  • Gavin Glinton– Los Angeles
  • Joe Vide– NY Red Bulls
  • James Riley – NE Revolution

Now the fun begins with some trades. I will keep track and post any and all trades here shortly. Very interesting selections, some good and some not to bad. But I think they are on the right track to start a new club here with some of these guys.

Colorado, Kansas City and Real Salt Lake were not hit by an selections in this draft.

Interesting selections, as a Dallas fan it is sad to see a quality player like Goodson leave. Though I think Dallas was going to do an overhaul on the backline this off season anyways. The Poznaik pick seems like a bit of a waste to me, I would have taken a Burciaga or someone else from Colorado before I would have taken him I think.

San Jose seems to have built a decent defense for next season so far. I like the direction though some people may take this as them getting a bunch of so-so defenders to start a new club. I think the otherwise really.

What do you all think so far about this?

    As a Quakes fan, I think those are good picks. I'm guarded however since there will probably be a whirlwind of trades coming soon. I have a feeling something will be happening with regards to a trade for a keeper and could also include the likes of one Clint Mathis. I would very happy if he'd end up a Quake. Regardless, I see a string of blockbuster trades coming soon maybe even a three or four teamer involving a bunch of guys!
