Mapp signs with Sporting KC | The Blue Testament

Who had Justin Mapp as the first free agent to sign? My money was on Drew Moor to be that first one. Still, Mapp is a quality player when healthy that will make Sporting a tough team to deal with next year.

There is some good bits in this on how wild the offseason has already been in MLS. This also looks at whether or not FCD will get their man this offseason.

Is dos Santos a bad fit for LA? | LAG Confidential

Funny how everyone was signing the praises of this move a few months ago are now questioning if it is still a good thing. I think an offseason program with LA and preseason camps will help change things in LA for guys like Gio and Steven Gerrard. Then again, maybe they'll both be DP busts.
