Timbers Tid Bits: MacMath Edition

What's this, a Philadelphia goalkeeper gets his own TTB edition? Yes and for good reason to. You see, starting tonight for the Philadelphia Union is Zac MacMath, the #5 overall pick in this years SuperDraft. He'll be the fourth youngest goalkeeper ever to start for an MLS side at the age of 20. The reason why he's starring in this edition is because I want to highlight his possible implications for Saturday's match against the Timbers as he'll likely be starting then as well. Will he succumb to the pressure or strengthen his resolve?

In any case, his performance tonight is a huge indicator of what we can expect come Saturday, a desperately needed road win for the Timbers, might I add.

Enjoy your morning news!
