Well, the season is winding down, and I think it's about time we get ready, for the first time, to say goodbye to a lot of the players in the league. I think it's pretty likely that this offseason will be the signal the first mass exodus of talented players for greener pastures, so I thought I would take a look at who might be leaving at the end of the year. Feel free to add your own, or disagree with my judgments. Chicago Fire Beasley - Obviously planning to take off after this season, even hired a new agent who specializes in moving players overseas. I believe MLS will get a transfer free for him. Bocanegra - Contract is expiring, and I think there's pretty much no chance that he'll be sticking around any longer. Columbus Crew No one really, though a smart club could tender a big offer for Edson Buddle, I sure hope they don't. Cunningham may be moving teams if he can't break the lineup, but I doubt we'd see him leaving the league. D.C. United Marco Etcheverry - Hopefully he retires, but if he doesn't, I pray D.C. doesn't bring him back. I think he's pretty much a lock to be gone. Ryan Nelsen - apparently piqued interest at the Confederations Cup, but hopefully he'll stay around longer. His departure could be a boon for Brian Carroll though. Stoichkov - another likely retiree. Convey - I think he'll stay around and make another go at England next year, but I guess there's the chance he could leave for Spain or somewhere. Seems likely we'll see him back though.
