 MetroStars
Before the season began the MetroStars traded midfielder Marcelo Vega and forward Raul Diaz Arce to San Jose in exchange for "future considerations." While this may sound like a typical deal for "a player to be named later," it was not.

Supposedly, the MetroStars will be receiving their "marquee" player in short order, but the season is already more than a third over and every day, every game which slips by without big-name help will only serve to bury any hopes they have for a winning season.
