  • DaMarcus Beasley, Herculez Gomez, Pachuca

I meant to get around to talking about this yesterday but failed to find the time to. Its starting to be summer here in Dallas, which means time to enjoy cooking out for dinner in the evenings. Anyways, I wrote a little story yesterday over at SBnation about two USMNT players, Herculez Gomez and DaMarcus Beasley, on how they’re moving to or around Mexico this summer.

Beasley is set to move from Germany’s Hannover to Mexico’s Pachuca, while Gomez is moving from Pachuca to Tecos.

You may be asking yourself why these two aren’t going to MLS anytime soon. Simple, money. Pachuca is loaded and can take a risk on a guy like Beasley. Plus, with all the injuries to big named playmakers in MLS this season you can probably see why a guy like Beasley, who has injury issues, would want to stay away from it until players are better protected. And the money thing, yeah, he’ll still get paid much better in Mexico than in the US.

Its disappointing not to see Run-DMB back in MLS but his time will come soon enough.
