Bradley's decision

Assuming Bob Bradley has his interim tag replaced, he's going to face a tough decision regarding Copa America. If, as expected, he takes a team with few or no European-based players to Copa America, the team could struggle especially of Landon Donovan stays with the Galaxy.

There are some good MLS players who were not part of Wednesday's disastrous draw. Guys like Brian Ching, Jonathan Bornstein and Ricardo Clark were not included, as well as Pablo Mastroeni, Chris Albright and Chris Rolfe. With those guys on the field, I'd feel much better about the Americans' chances and even more so with Landon Donovan.

Still, Sunday's lineup versus Ecuador was what we likely will see in the Gold Cup and something like Wednesday - a mix of young and younger - is what we might see in Venezuela.
