Thanks to the guys at MFLS for the list of moves since mid-February. Since that was when I wrote most of my previews, please excuse me if I did not mention some of the roster changes on this list. Like for example, the Seattle signing of Fredy Montero, as so many Sounders’ fans have mentioned in the comments. Sorry guys, I wrote SEA first.

He’s quite a beast and makes me a little more confident in their ability to break the dreaded “curse of the expansion team” that started with TFC. But, I still think they miss the playoffs even if he scores 15 goals. Keller is great, but not enough defense yet, in my opinion. Please come back tomorrow for all my predictions for the 2009 MLS season.

I also wanted to give you an injury update today, but MLS hasn’t gotten around to posting those lists yet even though the season starts in 2 days. Go figure. It is St. Patty’s Day, so I suppose no one can be expected to be working too hard. Hopefully we’ll at least get the injury report tomorrow before the season kicks off Thursday. 

Also, please watch the First Kick coverage Thursday and watch SEA v. NYRB. The more people watch, the higher the ratings, the more advertising bucks and media exposure, etc. etc. MLS needs our support, so let’s all give it to them and make 2009 the year MLS rises into America’s sports conscience. I know it’s time, even if some idiots don’t.
