Yanks Abroad is reporting Conor Casey has had trouble finding a team in Europe and is coming to MLS - specifically to Toronto FC. Very interesting to see how this move works with the current roster. Strikers Edson Buddle, and Alecko Eskandarian are making a good "MLS" money at the moment. Will Toronto stay with all three American strikers or will one be moved? Casey may spend time with the US National team this summer at either the Copa America or Gold Cup, so cover may be needed. I still find it very strange that Eskandarian wouldn't show up to get to know the guys this week. Talk about Casey being traded to Colorado has already surfaced. Colorado coach Fernando Clavijo was apparently in hot pursuit of Casey's signature. Toronto however passed on several of Colorado's higher profile players in the expansion draft back in November. Sir Mo will need more than Draft Picks or Allocation proceeds in return from future trades.
