Galaxy Acquire Franchino

Well THIS CERTAINLY IS A BOLT FROM THE BLUE

I thought the next "Joey, Joey, Joey" news we'd hear would be either his retirement or his pantsless 4 AM arrest outside a convent.

And Gavin's pay gets cut in half - I bet he's a happy boy today.

Some of you will recall that Franchino was with the Gals previously, and was part of one of the periodic MLS Chinese Fire Drills that they used to hold when they were trying to stuff a roster.

In that case, they let LA have Luis "El Crapador" Henandez but they had to send Franchino to the Revs and Mathis to the Metros.

And HERE'S THE SORT OF TALE THEY'VE BEEN TELLING ABOUT JOEY FOR YEARS (Courtesy of "Murtaugh" at Section 8)

Apparently they were HAVING QUITE A NIGHT

I can certainly see the Revs wanting to unload the guy, but why in the world would the Gals give anything more than "future considerations" or a third round Supplemental Draft Pick in 2014 or "a bag of used socks" for a guy like this?

Willie Tango Foxtrot?
