    Only a few weeks after describing his starting keepers play last season as "atrocious" and leaving him unprotected in the expansion draft, Nick pulls a flip-flop as now it seems Jonny Walker is the best thing since sliced bread:

    Sakiewicz, who raised eyebrows when he publicly criticized Walker's play at the end of last season, sounded like a general manager who expects to have Walker back in 2005.

    "I'm happy with Jonny Walker, I think he's a very good goalkeeper," said Sakiewicz. "He had a rough year last year but I think he's going to have an All-Star year next year. I'm not about to wash Jonny Walker down the river.

    Yeah, he loves Jonny Walker. Thats why he protected Zach Wells first and thats why he's thinking about bringing in Tony Meola. He loves Jonny Walker alright, and with what he's getting paid its probably the Blue label.

    Nick's just puffing him up in order to shop him. No GM would say, "This guy really stinks!" and then expect to get anything for him in a trade. Nick is just making him look good for the market.

    But for crying out loud, you don't need an expensive keeper to win championships in this league. See: DC United. Mark Simpson, Scott Garlick, Tom Presthus, Nick Rimando. I doubt any of those guys made over $50,000.

    Dump Walker and pick up an expensive striker who can actually score goals. Or make room on the payroll for Jeff Parke's salary increase. If it's not coming this year, it's coming next year.

    It was obviously a huge mistake to refer to Walker's year as atrocious. But this quote makes sense. After the mistake of calling him that, and then leaving him exposed in the expansion draft, he shoud be saying positive things about next year.

    Dear Nick,

    Please shut your pie hole on all player-related matters. Then, why don't you: sell some tickets, build a stadium, create some fan loyalty, correct maybe one-tenth of your marketing mistakes. Or, better yet, resign.
