My weekly Sounders chat is live from an Ivar's branch in Tukwila. Happy Good Friday
All has been quiet on that front. I get the impression that they're giving the Brad Evans experiment a few months before deciding whether to upgrade the defense. This summer could be more active
It appears as though it's designed to open up room for a future move. I haven't heard anything about the Sounders bumping against the top of the cap, even if the new one isn't as high as some expected. Kevin Parsemain was let go with a similar reason in mind -- to free up an international roster slot.
I think Alonso is still a week away. Here is Schmid following training yesterday at CenturyLink: “Injury-wise, he’s over that. Now it’s just a matter of building his fitness.”
Alright folks, questions are drying up so we're going to call it early today. Thanks for tuning in and come back tomorrow as the Sounders host the Dynamo at CenturyLink Field. Kickoff slated for 7 p.m. PST.
