Headlines
Minnesota United has a historically bad defense and they are taking steps to improve it. They have traded away Josh Gatt and Mohammed Saeid to Colorado Rapids for left back Marc Burch and defensive midfielder Sam Cronin. These defensive reinforcements will be tasked with improving a defense that has conceded 18 goals through four games. As for Colorado, they get a little bit of help in the midfield at the expense of their captain and excess defending. The Rapids had the best defense in MLS last year, so they presumably can afford to give up a little in exchange for some forward play in the midfield.
