A day after what was a pretty good day in the MLS Super Draft for the Rapids, today they just completed the trade made with the Columbus Crew SC yesterday for the 14th pick by trading away defender Chris Klute and in return receiving allocation money. Definitely not a move I think anyone saw coming. Full story here.
What are the front office and Pablo thinking?
Klute will certainly excel in his new home. How can he not with a club and front office that has more direction in where they want to go in 2015 and beyond than what we’ve seen here with the Rapids.
Thanks for everything Klute, best of luck with the Crew.
The Rapids held an open “burgundy versus blue “intra-squad scrimmage for fans today at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Here are just a few of my photos from today.

Keeper Clint Irwin sat out today’s scrimmage with an injury
According to ColoradoRapids.com today’s scrimmage drew about 200 fans. Not a huge number by any means, but honestly more than I figured would even show at all, considering this scrimmage was just announced Friday.
