Havent even looked through it yet, but who is the most underpaid / overpaid / who needs a better agent.

 

 

 

 

Rivas at 450K is a joke

Redding at 125k hurts my soul; dude cant even get on the USL bench....

 

CCJ at 70k seems high but they must think he has a high ceiling.

Murillo at $88,700 and Long at $73,100 jumped out at me. Our payroll is quite small.

gotta figure Collin will be the odd man out next year, with Long, Parker, and Murillo splitting his salary. 

 

Redding needs to shape up or get out.  Way too much for someone who isn't regularly on our 18.  Would rather we sign a veteran for that amount.

 

Etienne definitely underpaid.  

 

If Valot continues his form, he's definitely underpaid too.

Payroll is very small.. The major advantage of being this young, scouting well, and developing guys very well.

 

In my opinion, give Parker whatever he wants. Comparing him to other CB's, he's going to get 700k plus and he's worth it.  The fact that he's not scoring goals is part of my hope that teams across the pond don't notice him.   Would also give Taxi a nice raise. 

 

Murillo I think wants go on to bigger and better things and unlike Taxi, it should be easier for him to find a team.  


Adams also a likely sale after this season.  The offers this summer however will be the most interesting time.

 

Collin not going to be back next year either way.   

 

Rivas is gonna have to show improvement as well by the end of the year.  Hoping good coaching eventually turns him around.  Unlike Redding, he does have tools.

I wouldn't be surprised if Redding isn't gone this summer, unless he has a guaranteed deal.   Collin is almost certainly gone net year without a significant pay cut.

Looks like Keita is on the MLS payroll... Did RB use the one magic buyout on him? 367K, ugh. Well, not my money...

Yeah, thinking so. Amazing that they decided so quickly that they didn't like him. Wonder how much was the field and how much was locker room.

5th lowest payroll in the league. With how good the team looks, the front office and Marsch deserve a TON of credit.

The Sacha trade really does look ridiculous. But Collin gave us 1 really good year and Orlando was paying him at the time.

Uhhh, Redding has tools. Thats why they made the trade. What he seems to be lacking is desire.

Basically we're asking to lose Taxi and Murillo. Between them, Adams, Marsch, I'd hope they can win MLS / Open  Cup with this team before it's picked apart.

 

If Marsch can turn Rivas into a player befitting his salary...watch out.

If he does that and then follows it up by walking across the Hudson River it would be an anticlimacs.
