  • 2011 MLS SuperDraft, Jeremy Hall, Trades

The trade season is about to get going here. The league has announced a trade between the New York Red Bulls and the expansion Portland Timbers today. The Timbers have acquired defender Jeremy Hall in exchange for a third round draft pick in January’s SuperDraft.

Hall played 37 regular season games and made 31 starts over his two years in New York, logging two assists. He never really seemed to fit in to the Red Bulls long term plans I thought. I kind of felt he’d be exposed for the expansion draft and picked up by one of the two expansion teams. New York was wise to at least get something out of it and get a low round draft pick in the process. Also I doubt many New York fans will really be upset over this deal too.

Nice, cheap pickup for the Timbers though. This could be a heck of a deal for them really if Hall ever reaches his potential that we saw in 2009.
