- Jacob Peterson, Preki, Trades, Ty Harden
It seems like this winter Toronto FC and the Colorado Rapids are becoming big trade buddies with one another. Earlier the Rapids sent midfielder Jacob Peterson to Toronto and today the two clubs are dealing again. Toronto has traded for defender Ty Harden in exchange for third round MLS SuperDraft pick in 2011.
Interesting development for both sides. Harden came back last season after a year off but was a bit limited due to injuries. I like Preki going after him here though for TFC who still needs work on their backline. Harden isn’t quite the answer to their problems but he is going to add to their depth in the long run.
I think this deal for the Rapids point of things shows they are set to probably move Pablo Mastroeni to the back four and allow Jeff Larentowicz to control the defensive side of things in the midfield this season. Both are moves I like for them right now.
What do you all make of this deal for each side? Think Preki knows what he is doing with TFC’s defense right now?
