- 2010 MLS SuperDraft, Christian Gomez, Designated Player, Ivan Guerrero, Trades
And that didn’t take long at all. The mega-deal (again) involving Christian Gomez is complete.
United acquired Gomez, goalkeeper Mike Graczyk, an international roster spot and salary cap considerations (Rapids will pick up some of Gomez’s salary this year) and traded the Rapids a package that included its own Designated Player slot, Ivan Guerrero and second-round pick in the 2010 MLS Draft.
DC gets their playmaker back while the Rapids unhaul a headache. Honestly even though the Rapids will have to continue to pick up the tab on Gomez this year I think they got the better end of the stick here. I like the move to land Guerrero here as well as getting the DP slot back.
Who do you think got the better end of the deal?
