Yedlin to Roma


Looks like he's going to Europe, but we will have our chance to say goodbye through the rest of the MLS season. Good for him and good for the league. Many weren't sure about his inclusion for WC (even a Sounders fan or two I saw here), but he certainly showed well.

I know it will be oversold elsewhere: had we been an MLS club a year or two earlier we might have gotten our hooks into Rubin, who was destined for big things regardless. But I also think we need to be careful, even if blinded by rivalry, not to undersell it: they got him on board, and one thing I've always liked about Sigi is the way he gets young guys, and just lots of guys onto the field (even when his hand isn't forced). Seattle had a great deal to do with his development.

A couple questions. Does Seattle just get cash, or do they get allocation for this? It would be weird to develop this guy (all the way to the USMNT), then sell him and actually lose roster construction flexibility, as Yedlin didn't count against cap. Does the league get the same cut on this deal that they would, if Seattle sold, say Kenny Cooper?

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
