The Freddie Ljungberg Deal: Couldn't Both Sides do Better?
So much for the sweet Swede and TiTi getting the band back together in New York. Freddie Ljungberg has moved to Chicago and I'm kinda torn on who is getting the shaft in this deal: Chicago or Seattle? On one hand all Seattle is getting for a DP is a conditional draft pick. A conditional draft pick? Are you kidding me? The 'Quakes got a conditional draft pick AND Chris Wondolowski for Cam Weaver. Surely Ljungberg is worth more than that; they couldn't throw in some "future considerations" at the very least?
And Chicago? They get another gifted but sortakindacrazygonuts guy to go along with gifted but sortakindacrazygonuts Nery Castillo. Basically they are going to have a midfield made up of a Euro and a Latino version of Murdoch from The A-Team. Is there really a winner in this deal?
