X Gs

The Galaxy has always had a history of former players doing damage in the league. Before, I couldn't figure out if it was bad scouting that led to the release of so many players that did well elsewhere or perhaps just the natural consequence of trades, or maybe just roster limitations that did not allow the Galaxy to keep all of their players. I suppose it's just a combination of everything.

Now, after the most recent player purge the number of ex-Galaxy players across the league is astounding. So you're going to get good performances by former Galaxy players like you did last weekend.

Four former Galaxy players combined for five goals this weekend. Ante Razov had a goal and two assists for Chivas USA. Of course, Razov is an ex-Galaxy player from way back in the day but he still fits the criteria.

More recent and players are:
- Santino Quaranta, who scored for DC
- Nate Jaqua, who scored twice for Houston
- Daniel Paladini, who scored for Chivas USA

Also, the two coach of the year candidates I talked about yesterday - Sigi Schmid and Frank Yallop - are former Galaxy coaches, of course.

Anyway, food for thought if nothing else.
