You have to love the craziness of this week in MLS with drafts, lists, more drafts. Oh and trades. Yesterday was a massive day and the rest of this week is sure to be similar.

The club has a big holiday sale going on this Friday. Definitely worth checking out.

Definitely some bigger names on this list like Eddie Johnson, Diego Fagundez, Mauro Rosales, Kenny Cooper, Jackson, and Corey Ashe. Lots of over priced names in that short list too but definitely some talent to consider as we move forward. New York and Orlando have plenty to pick from but I would imagine they'll be wheeling and dealing tomorrow as well.
Anyone remember CJ Sapong? Yeah, I kinda forgot about him too in KC. Well, yesterday the Union finally were able to bring him home (they once tried to make a HGP claim on him).
Nice interview with Robbie Rogers who has recently won his second MLS Cup.
One of the weirdest sounding deals I've ever seen. They traded Omar Salgado to NYCFC but were also able to retain any transfer fees that may come down the road for him. Smart move by the Whitecaps.
Man, you have to tip your cap to Orlando for the work they've been doing. They certainly added some quality yesterday to their roster.
Adding some more youth national teams, more coaching stuff. Lots of things really that will take some time to truly develop here in the country but overall it is a good move forward for the US.
Oh please no. A 'tournament of champions' with MLS. Didn't SuperLiga teach us nothing?
God love Mike Petke. Seriously, the New York Red Bull manager is a hero. Now especially a Twitter hero. I know reporters like these aren't worth the time of day to go after but I love the comment from Petke that says thanks for making us more relevant. Ha.
Alright, that is all that I have for this morning. What do you folks have today? Think a new MX-MLS tournament could work? Any player in the expansion draft unprotected lists that surprise you?
