Jim Alexander doesn't come out to soccer as much as we'd like but the venerable Press-Enterprise columnist is always full of insight when he does.
He's not your typical soccer-sucks columnist who groans at an MLS assignment. On the contrary, he always wants to find out as much information as possible on the goings on in MLS and the local sides.
It's always interesting to read angles from such sports writers because often we're reading our own stuff ("our own" meaning good writers like Steve Davis and Jeff Carlisle and the like) and while there isn't anything wrong with that, it is nice to get an outside perspective.
Anyway, Jim's got a blog post here with some info on the Galaxy's lineup in terms of salary. His audience is predominantly made up of general sports fans on the blog there.
I always try to get Jim to come out for more soccer games and hopefully if the Galaxy keep winning and Chivas USA gets its act together he'll have more reason to go. That one of our own, Redlands' Landon Donovan, is tearing things up certainly doesn't hurt the cause.
