So much for yesterday's optimism and happiness. For reasons I cannot even begin to fathom, United has waived promising young forward Blake Brettschneider. Despite the promise shown by Brettschneider and the difficulty of acquiring quality young attacking talent, he was apparently expendable on a team that plans on starting 2 guys that are both regulars for their national teams. Meanwhile, a quick look around Twitter reveals that just about every other MLS club has a fan or journalist thinking that their team should be calling Brettschneider up right now and getting him into camp. Feel free to beat your head against a wall now.
