    "Edozien is the only MLS player qualified to coach his team during the week, then fly the players on a road trip, and score goals in the game." A jack of many trades...

    "Cassio, waived by the Revolution Tuesday, has been replaced by former MetroStars defensive midfielder Gilberto Flores, who turns 22 next week . . ."

    Gilberto Flores

    http://www.metrofanatic.com/mf/team/player.jsp?ID=149#

    Could somebody please explain to me why we had to trade a draft pick for someone we claimed off waivers?

    Not that it was all that much, but according to another thread in this forum, we acquired Flores from the MetroStars for a 4th round pick in next year's supplemental draft even though he was one of the nine players waived a few days ago. I thought these players would just be available.

    Did the Metroscum give anything to the Goats for Suarez?



    Also, Flores should be a youth/transitional international. We don't have any slot for him in that category.

    I'm sure they could promote a YI to an SI if they want. They have the slots. Perhaps now is the time to put Dorman on the Senior roster and make him an SI, or maybe make Smith an SI since he is already on the senior roster. Or they could cut an YI on the dev squad. Romaneiro?

    You can't do that--he may be the only one who can translate for Flores ;)

    Gilberto was a very solid player for Metro until the Clint Dempsey "incident" last year. He was discovered by Bradley last year and came on strong last June and July (played an outstanding game vs. LA in the HDC where Gaven scored two goals). He is a defensive midfielder but also lines up out wide. Somewhat bewildering that you would release Cassio who was billed as much more of a two-way player to pick up Gilberto....

    He has not been the same since his injury-a touch slower mentally, not as hard in the tackle and seems a little slower physically then he was before. He has not started at all this year and played only for the Reserves, giving average performances and not distinguishing himself too much. If he can regain his form from last year, he could push Jospeh for minutes. He might also be an ideal candidate to play outside back.

    My guess: Flores was brought in as cover for Dempsey, and might provide some additional depth on the wing. Assuming we have Joseph and Dorman as our defensive mid-fielders, that would really leave Nicol without a back-up at that position.

    Maybe a change of scenery will result in a change in fortunates, but at the very least, he's good, cheap cover, he can spell Dorman or Joseph late in games, and will probably see significant minutes with the Revolution Reserves.

    That being said, the Revs still have a minor allocation (for Daniel Hernandez) they could use, at least one discovery pick, two SI slots available, and what would seem to be a significant amount of cap space.

    A lot of foreign players became free agents at midnight, but how active are the Revs in monitoring the radar screen?

    Only if they are not picked in the first waiver draft held after they are waived. If we grabbed him in the waiver draft, we wouldn't have owed them anything. The price of inaction.

    The waiver drafts aren't formal anymore, it's just 48 hours after waiver where teams can ask to pick a player up, and if two teams both want in, then the lower ranked team has priority unless the higher ranked team trades up.
