Kei Kamara’s Free Market MLS

Kei Kamara’s Free Market MLS

Hello Rapids fans! This week on Holding The High Line, we break down the first full week of the MLS off-season in chronological order. The guys analyze the Zac MacMath for Nicolas Mezquida trade. We discuss MacMath’s legacy in burgundy and his trade value then take a look at what role Mezquida will bring to Colorado.

The guys briefly discuss the MLS Expansion Draft (yay Axel Sjoberg staying!), then do a full break down of the Kei Kamara trade. We discuss his career history (the good and the bad), talk about the asset evaluation of the trade, his style of play, and much more. We finish off the show with a very speculative look at MLS Free Agency.
