    Watching ESPN News they have been talking about the 10 Mexican players that Chivas USA already has. Does anyone have a list of these players? I heard Rongen mention Ramon Ramirez in the interview and someone else who I missed.

    Ramon Ramirez and Francisco Palencia are the only players selected to join Chivas USA there hasnt been news on other players, maybe in the next weeks..

    If I'm not mistaken, next year teams will be allowed to have 4 senior internationals, and 3 transitional internationals. That ads up to 7. Does that mean the last 3 will have to be youth players? Or are there players with Chivas that already have green cards. I don't get it. It must be the new math.

    The 2 new teams have an additional 2 SIs for a still undetermined amount of time.

    Which gives them 6 SIs and 3 TIs and maybe a player already with a Green Card?

    Umm, I think they get 2 extra TIs, not SIs. So, 4 SIs and 5 TIs, but I could be wrong.

    They got De La Torre, who is a dual US/Mexican citizen, so with 4 SIs and 5 TIs they could have 10 Mexicans. Also Gomez is a US-born Mexican-American.

    None of the 10 players I was asking about were players from the expansion draft. I read on the Wynalda article up on MLSNet that Alfredo Talavera was one of the players too.

    Talavera or another Mexican keeper would have to be coming--they can't have the keeper, of all people, not speak Spanish. Jonny Walker was the only possibility, and when they didn't take him, that's what this meant (unless there's a trade brewing or something).

    basically it's someone that can still represent their countries youth national team. 23 is the cutoff I believe. They don't count towards the four senior international spots.

    RSL and Chivas USA got 5 TI slots apiece. Earlier Chivas USA traded Jeff Stewart for one of RSL's TI slots, so now they have 4 SI slots and 6 TI slots.

    All I heard about Mexican players coming to Chivas USA were Ramon Ramirez, Francisco Palencia, and Alfredo Talavera. But there's a thread here that says Palencia ain't coming.

    Palencia isn't coming (he doesn't want to)

    Zuniga will likely be the keeper

    Romo and Sandoval will likely be sent to Chivas USA

    So that's 4/5 of the 10. The rest aren't known publicly
