Andranik Eskandarian smiled a coy smile as he considered how much the Metros must be regretting their decision not to trade up to select his son. "I bet the MetroStars are wishing they had traded for him now," Andranik said in the D.C. locker room after Sunday's game. "I still don't understand that one but look at (Alecko) now. He's a champion." http://www.bergen.com/page.php?qstr...lRUV5eTY2MTQ0NTUmeXJpcnk3ZjcxN2Y3dnFlZUVFeXk2 Sounds a bit unfair. If I recall, DC United was asking for a lot to move up in the 2003 draft, similar to what the Crew were asking to obtain Szetela. Other juicy tidbits: 1) Another reason Metros also leaving Walker uprotected is because he was not "vocal" enough and did a poor job of organizing the defense. 2) Metros quietly shopping Eddie Pope (no surprise) for a "less expensive defensive leader". After the DC United playoff loss, we kept hearing from the team that they don't need to make that many changes, but with rumors of Razov coming aboard, possibly losing guys like Walker, Vaca and Brenes in the expansion draft and perhaps dealing Pope, it's apparent that this is going to be more than a little "tweaking" in terms of the roster.
