Make or Break in Schelotto Saga?
Lost in the Expansion Draft talk is that the Crew and the Schelotto camp continue to talk and that the Argentine’s agents gave the Crew one final offer on Monday. This was a take it or leave it choice for the Crew, sign him or he’s not coming back.
With a final offer tendered by Schelotto, both sides won’t have to wait long before seeing what the future holds. The Crew have to make a decision about Guille’s worth to the team both on and off the field. I have to think that Schelotto’s future will be decided by the end of the month. It’s a bad sign if there is no news in the coming days about a new contract.
I still hold out hope that both sides get a deal done. The Crew could use another year of Schelotto’s imaginative play. He’s a fan favorite and would be an asset to the Crew organization when he retires. For Schelotto, Columbus is a very comfortable city. He has settled in nicely to the point his family can join him during the season. It makes too much sense on both sides for a deal to fall through, but sometimes people don’t make the deal that makes the most sense.
