The team is 2-1-4 through what may be the softest portion of its league schedule. The roster was thin to begin with and now fixture congestion is settling in. Meanwhile the team's best player is on a leave of absence, dealing with an addiction problem (meaning the club may not get him back until the after the May fixture congestion). Seems to me the Revs need to place their bets right now. They can't field their A team every game this month. Somewhere they have to take their chances with a B team. The most obvious place to take those chances is SuperLiga. No one's going to weep overly much if the team loses those games. It's a showcase tournament that wins you nothing but a little cash. Let the players like Colaluca and Videira get some runs in there. That leaves the league and U.S. Open Cup. I suspect the standard response will be to emphasize the league, but I'd prioritize U.S. Open Cup. My reasons why are because the Revs aren't going to be finishing high in the league table and may not even be all that close to a playoff spot even if they put 100% into the league games. Meanwhile, other MLS teams tend to overlook U.S. Open Cup, resting key members of their starting XI for those games. Perhaps New England could win out by playing its top players in those games. More importantly, the USOC winner gets a CCL spot next year. And hopefully next year the Revs have a stronger squad capable of competing in the CCL. This team only may be able to make a limited splash. Given that, I'd try to maximize the splash it can make next season. Hopefully the team can make the playoffs and get on a run there, but I wouldn't let optimism get in the way of cold calculation at the moment.
