Needless to say, it sounded flattering when I first read his statement, "There’s probably no other MLS team I would have left for."

Indeed. Of course "special" in this case, appears to mean completely useless. Part of what draws Caleb to this job is that he gets to build from the ground up, because, as we all know, we are still at the ground level with this team. For us, that sucks. At least, right now it does. But for him, it's means he's got the whole slate to work with. He's not trying to carry on a legacy. He's not trying to fit himself into a system that was already established. There is no legacy, which means he can start the painting with the sketch. He's got the canvas all to himself.
Assuming, of course, that Gavin and Merritt are actually going to let him do it, and give him time to get over the bumps.
