- Expansion Draft
As expected the Seattle Sounders FC selected 10 players from a large pool of unprotected players today.
(EDIT: Sorry for the delay in this, traveling yestery kept me from being able to post this as these results came down while I was in the air. Plus I wasn’t done with my flying until late, but never late than never)
Here is the list of players chosen by Seattle:
- Nate Jaqua (Houston)
- Brad Evans (Columbus)
- Stephen King (Chicago)
- Jeff Parke (New York
- James Riley (San Jose)
- Khano Smith (New England)
- Jarrod Smith (Toronto FC)
- Nathan Sturgis (Real Salt Lake)
- Peter Vagenas (Los Angeles)
- Tyson Wahl (Kansas City)\
The first couple shockers are Vagenas and Jarrod Smith. Neither really seemed like likely picks before this draft by anyone. Not knocking Smith as I am a fan of him (he was a WVU guy). The rest of the picks were pretty expected though. Wahl from KC wasn’t a shocker, same with King from Chicago. The rest I pretty much had in my predictions.
Word is that New York will replace Jeff Parke with Mike Pekte. I’m still pretty sure they will make a deal or two here as Seattle picked a hand full of central midfielders.
So what did you all make of this draft? Any shockers from it?
