    Now we know what all the talk over the summer about him not coming back because of the officiating was really all about:

    "Guevara said all the right things yesterday. He didn't bring up the possibility of a raise from his estimated $200,000 annual contract to the league maximum of $270,000.

    "Probably I'll reach an agreement with the front office," he said at the ESPNZone at Disneyland. "I just want to be on the team again - for a long time. Four, five years, whatever they can give me."

    Also, he joins the long list of Metros who have already stated that this team needs some grizzly experienced veterans:

    "There has to be some changes," he said. "In Honduras there is a saying, 'Young players win games, but can't win championships.'"

    Well said.

    Good man. He probably hopes to play his final season in our own stadium. In 4 or 5 years we just might come up with something like a reasonable facsimile.

    Now, when do we get our first hairy Bulgarian vet to help us win a title?

    I'm surprised he's not making the max. Is it possible SGR gets more?
    Amado is the best Metro & now league MVP. If he can control his temper & Honduras fail to make the hex, he should have an even better 2005.

    SGR does make more.

    Several articles have had his salary at almost 300K. According to SoccerAmerica's listing of player salaries (posted before Galvan Ray joined the Metros), Guevara made about $225K this year:

    You guys need to see all the whining going on because he won MVP.

    Some bullplop about him not being deserving enough.
