The insanity continues...

Now we have an RSL blog telling us that Jeff Cunningham is being traded to Toronto. So if Esky is heading to Salt Lake, is this just a straight up deal? What purpose does that really serve? Who is the SUPER-CLUB going to get instead? WHAT IS GOING ON?!?!?

UPDATE: Alecko is going, check out this post of somebody reading his Facebook page. He hasn't updated his MySpace page, so I don't know. Poor Esky, he just keeps getting traded like he's John Wolyniec or something...

FURTHER UPDATE: Goff spoke with Esky, he's gone. Still no official word on Cunningham though...

EVEN FURTHER UPDATE: As Bob linked to in the comments, it's Cunningham for Esky. Toronto has also included a first round pick in the deal in '08.

NEXT DAY UPDATE: MLS Underground is reporting that the 1st round pick is going to Toronto, not RSL. That means Toronto will have FOUR first round picks next year.

Cunningham for Esky

Beat me to it, Bob.

I still think it's kind of a "meh" trade. I hope that extra $65K really means something to RSL. I would assume that they have someone in the crosshairs, and the extra bit of cash is what's needed to make it happen. That's what happened to Esky in DC...
