2 of 4 ain't bad

Bobby Boswell named MLS Defender of the Year, today. Congrats to Bozilla on the award, he certainly put together quite a solid season this year. This is kind of ironic considering that last year, he set a record for own goals scored in a season. Remind you of any other defender we picked up in the draft?

Meanwhile Eski loses out on Comeback Player to Richard Mulrooney. What started as a promising comeback season for Headgear was hampered by injuries, which limited his playing time.

What does this mean for Christian Gomez? Will it hurt his chances at the league MVP award to have United snag the Goalkeeper and Defender awards? Of course, here at DCenters we don't think it should. If Gomez doesn't win league MVP, it'll be more of a snub than 2004 when Metroturd Gueavara won the award over Jaime.

interesting question re: does Boz and Troy winning hurt Gomito's chances. My guess is no, but I DO think that having Boz, Troy, and Christian on his team hurts Nowak's chances at Coach of the Year -- the argument being, "with all those great players, you SHOULD win a lot."

Kris: Damn good question. One I've been thinking about myself. I agree with your assessment, and then asked the question "Is that fair?" I mean, are we really that talented? Or has Nowak, as they say, "Coached 'em up." I wanted to do a post on this, but haven't yet.

It's tough to say if they snubbed Christian this year, it would be a bigger snub. Jaime's was pretty bad, at least this year you can say that their are other still very deserving, sure RSL didn't make the playoff, but Cunningham was pretty darn good for them this year. I still think no question Gomez is the MVP of this season, but you have to be honest and say that Guevera's season in 04' was no where near Jaime's. At least this year Christian has some compnay in Cunningham, and DeRo.
