It is a bit nasty outside in the Metroplex today as FC Dallas gets ready to battle Houston this weekend.

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.
Speaking of Castillo, he also made sure to let folks know that the row boat was only the first of many celebrations he has planned for this season.

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.
Hearing that they are interested in an attacking midfielder scares me a little.
Merritt Paulson was once again making some noise yesterday about how the Timbers are exploring the idea of upgrading their stadium and other facilities. All I can say is that I would like to just see them ditch the turf for natural grass.
The more things change, the more they stay the same...or something along those lines I suppose.
This is an interesting thought but given how each year we see players come and go like this, I don't think there is any huge harm with those three exits. Leagues like China and Dubai are always going snag a player wanting money. And big clubs are always going to get the occasional young American.
Spot on as usual from Steve Davis.
If only this sort of thing could actually work itself out.
