Just a quick note about today’s 3pm ET lottery for California keeper David Bingham.

The New England Revolution have the greatest chance of landing the opportunity pick up Bingham. The Revs hold a 24.6 percent chance of winning the lottery, followed by other entries Toronto (17.9), Chicago (15.3), Seattle (10.8), San Jose (8.8), Columbus (7.1) and New York (5.5). Colorado, FC Dallas, Real Salt Lake, Los Angles, Portland and Vancouver each hold a less than five-percent chance of winning the lottery, while D.C. United, Chivas USA, Philadelphia, Houston and Kansas City all opted out of the lottery.

Who needs Bingham the most here out of those still in the mix? I could see a need for him in New England, New York, Seattle and San Jose. Bingham did grow up going to Quakes games so a natural fit would be them I’d think though he didn’t say he would want to play or one team over another.

Out of those who opted out, the most interesting ones to me are Houston, D.C. and Chivas. I kind of think one of them will go for the recently released keeper from Philadelphia Brad Knighton.

Once the lottery takes place and the “winner” is announced I will have the details for you here.
