Timbers Tid Bits: Mock Draft Edition

In case you guys didn't see it, yesterday was SB Nation's mock Expansion Draft. Some of you will also notice some, er, confusion on our part from the draft. Essentially Jake Gleeson was picked when I meant for him to be protected. What happened was I made a late addition and the SBN editors wouldn't allow such a late change.

Bummer, but I guess it was my fault as much as anybody's.

In any case, in this fictional SB Nation world we live in Jake Gleeson is now a Montreal Impact player. How would you guys feel if Gleeson really was traded or "picked" in the Expansion Draft?

Enjoy your daily news!
