At year end, Mr. Lewis's career remains a bit of an enigma. He played more minutes in roughly 3/4 of a season with Colorado than he did in 2.25 with NYC. His G+A/90 with the Rapids was a solid .801, down from the eye-popping 1.13 of his first 2 seasons with NYC (in just 561 minutes), but still quite good. His overall MLS figure is .860. You would expect someone like that to get regular minutes, but he's not.

When first traded, and excluding games he missed due to the Gold Cup, he started 6 of the first 7 games, subbed once, and averaged 70 minutes per game. Since then, in the final 12 games he started 4, subbed on 5 times, and DNP 3 times, averaging just 34 minutes per game including the DNPs. None of his post Gold Cup DNPs were due to NT duty and I don't remember him being hurt. The Rapids changed coaches with 7 games remaining, and his reduced playing time started 5 games earlier. In his entire career, he played 80 or more minutes only 4 times. So even when he starts he is usually among the early subs.

Still can't believe we got $650k for him.

He single-handedly crushed RB this year with two goals so for that he should be celebrated as an elite matador.
