With all the new influx of talent to the league this year MLS has come up with the Newcomer Award for a player with prior playing experience. The good news is that DC has two players up for the award. Luci and Fred. The bad news is that DC has two players up for the award. I'm thinking this is a good way to give away a sort of second MVP award. Here is a list of potentials for the award from MLS.net: Juan Pablo Angel - Forward, New York Red Bulls Cuauhtémoc Blanco - Forward, Chicago Fire Conor Casey - Forward, Colorado Rapids Luciano Emilio - Forward, D.C. United Fred - Midfielder, D.C. United Maykel Galindo - Forward, Chivas USA Carlos Marinelli - Midfielder, Kansas City Wizards Guillermo Barros Schelotto - Midfielder, Columbus Crew Juan Toja - Midfielder, FC Dallas As a fan of the league, the biggest impact players so far are Lucio, Angel and Toja. I would really like to see Luci get either the MVP or Newcomer award. I hope he can keep up his form and take one. What do you think of the award and are there others out there seriously competing for the league MVP not on the newcomers list?
