Well, it sounds more optimistic after yesterday that Fabian Castillo's injury wasn't as bad as we once thought. I'd still hold him out a couple weeks to be safe though.

A real nasty storm blew through the area yesterday as I am sure most of you are aware. FCD was suppose to have morning training during that time but instead found other ways to be productive.

Sounders setting themselves up for big splash |

Seattle made a trio of moves yesterday, one being my new favorite kind of deal where one team trades TAM for GAM. Gotta love MLS. Anyways, Seattle has the money and the open DP slot to do something interesting this year.
