Chivas Snags A Farfan Twin From Philly

Well Jose Luis Sanchez Solá, or El Chelis at least got one of his guys. Tuesday afternoon Chivas USA announced the trade of Gabriel Farfran from the Philadelphia Union in exchange for allocation money and a first round pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft.

Yeah. Money and a pick for arguably the lesser of the two Farfan twins. Consider this that Chivas only got allocation money from New England for Juan Agudelo and that makes this even more fun. Agudelo is worth only allocation while G. Garfan costs a first round pick (possibly a high one at this rate) and money.

Oh Chivas, you make it too easy to mock you sometimes. Still, uh, good pickup though.

Good job by Philadelphia to get plenty out of this as you know they’ll draft pretty well come next January with that pick.
