In Topic: Murillo on trading block

Yes, the tweet says that Portland offered a left back and allocation mondy last year. They've since shipped off Powell and signed another RB. I can't imagine that they were still interested.

Who would Portland have to offer?  

Portland probably offered Alvas Powell. Of course that ship has long sailed.

In Topic: RB had a discovery claim on Brian Rodriguez

Josh Simms has played like 30 games in 5 years.  That's a bold statement that he's better than Rodriguez.

And Rodriguez has played 11 Uruguayan Premier League and handful of continental matches over the past couple of years...

We'll see, but it's not much of a stretch to think that Sims is better at this point in time. In a couple of years, it will probably be very different.

LAFC doesn't need Rodriguez to put them over the top right now. RB's situation is different.

Of course, it's also possible that Rodriguez had no interest in coming here once LA became interested.

Why though? Is this to free up roster space? I feel like he would still be a decent option off the bench if we need a goal. 

We have a glut of wingers at this point and I'm sure that Etienne wants more minutes. I'm very comfortable with having Muyl, Omir, and Ivan available off the bench.

It's also possible that they're freeing up a spot for a CM from within the league.

Well, Luke Rodgers was an extreme case because of his criminal record, but you're right that it will probably take a week or two to get everything sorted out. (Unless the deal has already been done and they just haven't announced it.)
