They'll figure it out. But there are only so many first team contracts they can give out. Their developmental roster slots are full. Although does one open up with Sealy on loan at NTX? I don't know. Sometimes I'm also a little skeptical about these goalscorers at FCD. There have been some prolific academy goalscorers at FCD that have flopped at even an NCAA level. Sometimes you wonder whether the FCD youth teams are so much better than the academy regular season competition, that these kids just rack up goals against garbage teams. Tosh Yasuda, Gio Montesdeoca, etc. Its up to the staff to look beyond goal stats and say "is this kid really an MLS caliber player?" The next guy up in that particular queue is Brayan Padilla. As prolific as it gets in the academy. I don't really know the particulars of why he wasn't signed to a homegrown deal. But he went to Maryland, and has kind of fallen off the map. Got an ankle injury that cost him much of the season, and when he returned Maryland had forged an identity without him (they won the national title, right?) So gotta see him this season. Johan Gomez has committed to Portland. Portland! Something has to get done there. Somebody asked me the other day if a player is going to Bayern this year if Roberts isn't (and Roberts seems needed by the first team). The timing doesn't work for youngsters like Redzic and Tessman. It works for Gomez, whose 18th birthday is in July. That could be part of the carrot to get him to sign a deal.
