I predict that whichever of our attacking players scores the most between now and the roster deadline will be on the team, plus Tinnerholm. But if you really want minimal or no NYC presence then hope that Taty, Medina, Magno, Andrade, Heber and Santi all score roughly the same number of goals, and exactly enough to let us win most of the games but none of them enough to stand out. I'd rather just root for them all to score an obscene number of goals and make the entire league wonder how they hell anyone can ever beat us and take the chance one of them can run in a friendly for 45 minutes without hurting himself. At least 20 or so players participate every year and there's maybe 1 serious injury every few years.

MLS marketing would love to highlight a recently acquired Brazilian who is scoring at will, or a comeback POTY candidate, or a star who comes back from a knee injury and then tears up the league, etc. And I don't know how you keep Tinny off the team unless he's already hurt, which voids the point of keeping him off the team.

I like how MLS writers have already selected at least 4 all-stars and we've only played 7 games. lol.
