It appears that MLS is on track to be very, if not extremely busy these next few weeks. Time has flown us to Friday here this week, so lets wrap up the work week with some morning links.

Some good comments here from our young star on how he will lead the U-20s this month in the WC qualifiers.
A little ICYMI from yesterday, the club typically performs well in certain months of the year. Hopefully this season will be a tad more balanced in the form of a good playoff run.

I nearly dove into this article yesterday but opted not to. So much will change over the season with this sort of thing but right now...right now FCD has the weakest schedule of any Western Conference club. Boy, they have to take advantage of that.
The three writers are on the same page for the first couple of picks but after that it is all over the board like most mock drafts are. Like we pointed out yesterday, they think FCD will take a defender (something I don't disagree with).
You know, if the Hunts pull this sort of thing on Papi, I'm sure we'd all be doing the same. Thankfully they did not. Personally I do feel like throwing my support to the Red Bull fans for this though.
Sigh. Another team signs up on this front. At least the FCD-Arizona affiliate thing is sort of coming to being finalized.
On the other side of the Big Apple is the mess with Frank Lampard and NYCFC. So much involved here, our new friends at HRB try to at least break it all down as best as they can.
I'm fully expecting Jozy Altidore to end up in Toronto some how this winter. Just a gut feeling.
We do know that the Union will have a DP in goal but more importantly I think this deal helped bring in some funds or open up some funds to keep Maurice Edu on the books. Which is definitely a good thing.
Here is a good breakdown of the league's experience with superstars.
That's all I got for now, what say you?
