Rapids sign Mera on loan from Deportivo Cali

Game recap tonight (if I can quit laughing about it long enough to write it), salary discussion tomorrow, but first this.  Colorado just announced that they've signed German Mera, a big left-footed centerback on loan from Deportivo Cali until the end of the season.  He fills the roster and international spot freed up by Calderon (or Castrillon, or Harbottle) being on IR.  If, somehow all 9 internationals get healthy at the same time one of them will have to be cut, but the way our season  has gone that seems unlikely anytime soon.

Mera is 23 years old and has played his whole professional career under contract with Cali, but has been loaned to multiple sides in his career.  He's appeared 56 times for Cali in 3 seasons.
