    Or just get rid of Mena & Hernandez and get one really good CB, pair him with Chanot and have Brillant as an incredibly able CB backup?? I'm not jumping off the Freddy Brillant train just yet. In my opinion, the Mena-Traina and Hernandez trains both left months ago though.

    If there's room they may want to think about re-negotiating Mata and RJ upward.

    I don't hate Brilliant, I just think $260K can be better spent

    I personally like Brillant. He had some rough patches when he first couple of games after his transfer, but he has been our best defender all season IMHO. The guy is constantly covering the deficiencies of the CB next to him and does alot of little things that are really hard to see unless you are focusing on our CB play. Not going to say that he is an MLS allstar, but he is in my opinion an above-average to good starting CB and is paid an appropriate wage for a starting CB.

    Our roster building issue has to do with the fact that we are not yet 2 years post expansion. You can get cheap talent via Academy or the SuperDraft. We are still a couple years out from our first HGP signing and we have only two SuperDraft picks both of which were offensive players. Eventually, we will be able to get more value for our dollar, but we need the Academy pipeline first.

    Even so, if you look at defenders who are not cheap HGPs or SuperDraft picks, no one really calls out to me in the same salary range that are really that much better than Brilliant I think the best is yet to come when we finally get Brilliant and Chanot back together.

    It will be interesting to see who we protect in the expansion draft. It won't just be our Starting XI. Salary will be a big factor in all of that too.

    And the #1 reason that guy is a twerp is because he can't get his numbers right. He shorted the TAM by $100k when he did his arithmetic.

    Full amount is $6,048,000

    I'd bet dollars to pesos that he is one of those guys who calls himself an analyst but doesn't have great excel skills. If you do have good excel skills the first thing you do when confronted with a multi part equation, where you need to keep track of the component parts, is reach for excel. =sum(c2:c7) boom you have your answer.

    Actually to be fair I probably reach for excel a little too quickly, but it just does so many things!

    Article on some roster moves by Orlando to manipulate cap issues that both clarifies and muddles some finer points of MLS rules.

    Rochez was a young DP (200k cap hit). I think they changed some of the TAM rules around this year. Couple things are missing like the line about how someone needs to make under a million to use TAM.

    I believe Barnes was technically DP for the Whitecaps. IDK if that played a role.
