Of whatever note, Bobby Boswell is down about $40k since the April 1 list, and Sean Franklin is down about $90k.

So what does it all mean? Earlier allocation money from the Andy Najar or Alain Rochat transfers kicking in? Is all the 'we suck but we won Open Cup 2013' money kicking in? Is the Union releasing this list with these corrected numbers as part of posturing? Who knows. As always, the amount of salt in these lists is to be taken to your respective preference, but feel free to share any analysis or random surprises that the list may have brought this time.
