Well, it’s that time of year again. I don’t really plan on doing that much writing on soccer in the future (key word: “plan”), but this is a thing that I feel needs to be done for the good of the people. Over the last couple years, I’ve accidentally fallen into the role of resident MLS Draft expert. How has this happened? Well, how the hell should I know? It was the masses that decided! Anyways, it’s Draft Week now and it’s about time that I say some things.
First thing: I made a little fun Combine list. I took all 66 players and popped them into a nice spreadsheet with as much information as I could find of all the stats I felt I needed. It’s in alphabetical order, but also sectioned out by position as stated by the league media; so although this is a “Big Board” this is not my “Big Board”. Expect that later. Also, I have the 22 players in the Caribbean Combine on a separate sheet, but I have minimal info on those guys. If there’s something in there that you need help with deciphering it because my labeling is weird, just tweet at me.

So, next on the Agenda: Just like last season, this isn’t a real article, this is just a hub for people to get to the articles coming out sometime soon. An easy one-stop shop. Hopefully if I remember to do things, there’ll be some Pre-Combine stuff, a real Big Board, and a Pre-Combine Mock Draft all ready before Thursday. Trust me, I’m going to be spending a lot of time on this mostly because I have nothing else better to do before classes start back up.
