We're pretty much at the midway point in the offseason here as we're only a couple weeks out from the SuperDraft.
// FC Dallas //
A bit of a last call on this post from yesterday as we looked back on some of the bigger moments of the year.
// MLS //
Only a couple free agents have been gobbled up so far this offseason but San Jose got one of them yesterday with Chad Barrett. I guess that will work out with Chris Wondolowski.
Several big names have left MLS this winter for Mexico but this piece explains why that is a good thing. Mexican sides are starting to finally see that there is true talent in MLS and are trying to cash in early on some players.
No offseason loan or transfer for Andrea Pirlo as he seems comfortable in NYC. For NYCFC fans I do hope that a full preseason for guys like him are a good thing for that club.
Something must be in the water down in Central Florida as another person in Orlando's front office has stepped down or left.
We mentioned this yesterday in the Monday links, but here it is again. I'm ready to point and laugh when this actually happens. Another aging player signed to this club won't make them better in 2016. Surely Bruce knows that.
But the Galaxy do still have Gyasi Zardes for another year as the club seems to have found a way to fend off any transfers so far this winter. Good on them to at least keep that guy.
I mean finding good athletes is one thing but finding guys that can actually play together is an entirely different subject.
