Headed to St. Louis for the MLS draft early in the morning. Probably sticking around till Friday for the WPS draft as well so posting will be sparse. Will have photos and interviews up as soon as I can...
Lets hope the Wizards do well in the draft...

Royals coach accepts position with Kansas City Wizards. Northern Virginia Royals soccer team, not KC Royals. John Pascarella was the head coach of the Royals. He has been signed as the new goalkeeping/fitness coach for the Wizards.

Ives reports that Lopez re-signs with KC and is no longer a DP. So his salary dropped at least from $800K to $400K. But it gets better, Ives has been told that it may be half of DP money ($200K). The Wizards could be sitting pretty good cap wise. With a possible extra $200K from Lopez, another $100K or so of van den Bergh’s salary no longer on KC’s books, $115K not going to Marinelli, Trujillio’s salary of $70K and KZ’s retirement saving $170K, the cap looks good for the Wizards.
Of course Peter has said this each time I have talked to him. He mentioned that when he took over he had a 3 year plan to get the cap in line with where he wanted it and they were a year ahead of schedule. Well done Peter!!!
Side note: I have an interview scheduled with Peter on Monday to talk about the draft if everything works out. I will have to ask him about this of course but if there are any other subjects or specific questions to ask leave them in the comments.
