One Last Batch Of Pre-Holiday News

A few pieces of news to wrap up the pre-holiday part of the preseason.

  • The Rapids didn't take anyone in the Re-Entry Draft Stage 2, but Marvell Wynne was selected by San Jose.  So that leaves the Rapids with one player from the 2010 team left on the roster, Drew Moor (Armstrong is also around but was waived at the end of the season).
  • Two former Rapids were also taken,  Atiba Harris rejoins Pareja in Dallas and Nathan Sturgis returns to Houston.
  • Season openers were announced today.  We know two Rapids games
    • They'll open the season in Philly on March 7th.
    • We'll get our first look at expansion side NYCFC in our home opener on March 21st.
  • Today Colorado announced that Claudio Lopez has re-joined the club in a Director of Soccer role.  I'm not sure how this fits in with our existing Head Coach, Sporting Director, and Technical Director but I'm happy to see Lopez added to the brain trust.
And with that, I'm out (barring unexpected news next week) for Christmas.  Happy holidays to everyone and I'll try to have a couple of interesting posts during New Year's week.
