- 2009 Expansion Draft
Today is the final day in our expansion draft coverage/speculation/etc. as we look at three clubs. First up this morning is the San Jose Earthquakes. Later on today I will have Seattle Sounders FC and Toronto FC to round out the lists.
The discussion on these lists have been great and I really appreciate the feedback, both positive and negative.
Now for the Quakes:
|Arturo Alvarez||Bobby Burling|
|Quincy Amarikwa||Ramiro Corrales|
|Joe Cannon||Simon Elliott|
|Bobby Convey||Mike Graczyk|
|Cornell Glen||Darren Huckerby|
|Jason Hernandez||Chris Leitch|
|Ryan Johnson||Aaron Pitchkolan|
|Andre Luiz||Antonio Ribeiro|
|Brandon McDonald||Jamil Roberts|
|Ramon Sanchez||Shea Salinas|
|Chris Wondolowski||Andrew Weber|
For me it came down to Wondolowski and Salinas. I think Wondo has a little more upside at this point than Salinas. Wondo’s experience out weights Salinas for me at this point in their careers. Plus I’ve never been a big Salinas guy.
I still have a feeling we will see a deal worked out for Convey to go to Philly here. I think it is very possible to see a trade worked out, maybe not next week during this draft but down the road for sure as I bet Frank Yallop would love to shed that salary off the books since Convey never really played well in San Jose this past year. Plus we have to figure Convey wants to play in Philly too since he is from near that area.
Then there is Joe Cannon and what they will do with him. I think they’ll still protect him here but don’t be shocked at all if Cannon is not a Quake in 2010.
See anything I missed? Let’s hear it.
