The Cabana Boy is no more...
Ty Harden has missed too many assignments with his pool cleaning business and has retired from the LA Galaxy. At the age of 23. Wow. I don't even think Becks learned his name yet.
Sideline Views has some decent speculation on what could be going on here. Could be interesting...
The best thing about the whole deal is that SuperAmazing GM Alexi had a massive freakout and traded for Greg Vanney. The same Greg Vanney that DC wasn't interested in bringing back to the team. The same one who has the mobility of a parking cone. Yeah, that guy. To top it off, they actually traded someone with some upside, Quavas Kirk.
To quote Alexi, "We don't need no stinking young guys around here!!! MUST GO SIGN ZIZOU, FIGO, ROBERTO CARLOS, AND BOBBY MOORE NOW!!!"
I actually like Kirk. Injuries were a big problem for him last year, but he's still young and with a ton of potential. DC needs more depth on the wings, especially with Ben Olsen being forced to break out the Chivas USA healing methods. Kirk will fit in quite nicely.
