    Question: A lot of people on the Quakes forum are speculating about Eric Calvillo as he was just signed. No one (in San Jose and/or many MLS fans) has really ever seen him play. Can anyone tell me what type of player he is and what he brings defensively or offensively?

    Eric is an offensive player that could benefit SJ/Reno's attack on the right if he gets playing time. When the Cosmos were dealing with injuries, Eric stepped up and did well to earn a rotating place on the 1st team.

    Eric had some '2nd assists' too. IMO, I think his best skill is distribution at the moment. Given our teams woes, it hurts to see him leave and I think we would earned the starting role at midfield next year. With his willingness to learn, hopefully, San Jose in an MLS environment can further develop him.

    Danny Szetela is the first player signed by the Cosmos for 2019. I would expect the roster will look much like it did a year ago with a mixture of veteran professionals and younger players. Glad Szetela is back; he is just the kind of mature player you would want to lead young players.

    I think borrajo and bardic will be re-signed, wouldn't be surprised if we signed some cosmopolitan soccer league vets for the short Founders cup run. Agreed that they might sign up some u21 players too.

    Mendes and Bardic return for 2019.

    Mendes is signed for both the NPSL season and the Founders Cup. Bardic joins Szetela as veteran Cosmos first team players returning to the team. Like BRF, I too am hoping to see more players from last years B team returning. I only saw the B team play a little bit but I did like a few of the young players and I hope they will continue to get opportunities.

    Cosmos sign Aaron Dennis & resign Darwin Espinal.

    Dennis is a Cosmos academy product who has played professionally in the USL and with Miami fc. Last season he was with Penn fc.

    I'm both surprised and pleased that Espinal returns. I thought he would move on after last season with the Cosmos B team. He is a quality attacking player.
