Rapidly improving

Christian Gomez has been property of the Colorado Rapids for about three days now, and I still can't believe it.

I'm not so stunned that Colorado pulled off a deal - they actually had a decent offseason a year ago. But to get a player of Gomez's caliber, easily one of the top five players in MLS, is quite a surprise.

The move thrusts Colorado into the throes of the playoff contenders out West. I've always been a fan of Terry Cooke, and add Pablo Mastroeni, Mehdi Ballouchy and Colin Clark to the mix and Colorado has a deep, talented and versatile midfield.

Still, I am not convinced it can work simply because Fernando Clavijo is pulling the strings. Will he let the guys in the middle of the field play or will he suck the creativity out of Gomez? Still, as much incompetence as Clavijo has shown in recent years, even he can't mess up Gomez, can he?

Trust me Clavijo could seriously mess up Gomez. Bad coaching has a tendency to do that. But his coaching is horrible. Was it former National team midfielder Mark Chung who essentially retired because of that guy? I hope the best for C. Gomez but he maybe wishing by mid season that he had not let his contract negiotations with DCU get personal.

Well, speaking as a Galaxy fan, I sure hope so.

And really, it's not that big of a stretch.

i know Gomez is getting much hype but i think he is getting old quickly; i guarantee he is not a top 5 player this year.

Not to mention, didn't he cost Colorado a DP slot?

Gomez has played on good teams his entire career. If he is any good this will be there year that either cements that notion or proves he was just a system guy. Unfortunately for him, sports history is always revisionist at best.
