The post-Christmas edition.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

I hope everyone had a great and happy Christmas yesterday. Today is Boxing Day over on the other side of the pond but here in the States it is just the post-Christmas madness. Lets get into some morning links to get into the weekend here.

Caps sign young DP on Christmas |

Nothing like sneaking in a Christmas present in the form of a young forward from South America.

Xavi was 'this close' to joining NYCFC |

His bags were packed for New York until Barcelona came calling. I can't say I blame him for that decision.

Herrera happy with Torres signing in Houston | Houston Chronicle

Everyone is happy about this signing but those of us in Dallas.

Freddy Adu continues to look for a new home | Playing for 90

At some point Adu will accept that he just isn't good enough to cut it anywhere big.

College star heads to Italy's second division over MLS | American Soccer Now

I thought we were out of the days of young college stars skipping out on MLS for deals with lower division teams in Europe. But I guess not. I'm sure this kid will be back in the US in a couple years as one of those weighted lottery signings.

Gaston Fernandez is staying in Portland | Oregon Live

He was a solid signing last year for the Timbers.

Cuba could open up new opportunities | NY Times

You have to think that one of the minor leagues will expand to Cuba at some point. Though it would be funny to see Beckham ditch Miami for Havana.

Alright, that is all that I have for today. How was your Christmas? Get anything good this year?
