Ruiz Rumors Get Weird
The Crew are reportedly looking to acquire Galaxy forward Carlos Ruiz. I have now seen Glenn Davis report a rumor that the Crew would be willing to trade Frankie Hejduk for the mercurial striker. Unlike Davis, I think this rumor makes very little sense. Yes, LA would be getting a good defender, but the Crew are thin in the defense and could ill afford to give up a defender having a very good season. On a personal note, I would hate to see Frankie leave. His energy and passion make him a fan favorite. I cannot imagine that Ruiz will fill that role.
