Does Cuban defector Osvaldo Alonso have U.S. national team future?

Osvaldo Alonso is a three-time MLS All-Star and has established himself as a vital member of the Seattle Sounders.

Only a few hours had passed after President Obama's announcement of an easing of the relationship with Cuba when the first speculation began appearing about the implications for sports.

The discussion primarily centered on baseball and the prospect of hundreds of Cuban players finding their way to MLB, as everything from immediate all-stars to solid backup players. MLB has long had provisional plans in place for such an eventuality, while for their part the Cuban authorities have already set a...

'Cubo' Torres deal to MLS, with loan to Chivas, satisfies all parties

Of the 29 goals that Chivas USA scored in 2014, 14 came from Erick Torres.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- It is largely forgotten in the narrative of Erick "Cubo" Torres' rise that, before he left Chivas for MLS in mid-2013, the striker was the subject of boos from home fans inside Estadio Omnilife.

After bursting onto the scene in 2011, Torres became the embodiment of fans' discontent as a young side that had promised so much began to wilt under the expectation of success at one of Mexico's "big two" clubs. Torres scored just once in his last 20 appearances and was relegated...

So far, MLS offseason is providing just as much drama as the games

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol discusses Manchester City will likely do all they can to hold onto an in-form Frank Lampard for as long as possible, instead of moving to City's sister club New York City FC at the start of the 2015 MLS season.

Just because the games have stopped doesn't mean there isn't news. This is Major League Soccer: with so many player movement mechanisms in place, there's bound to be something to talk about most weeks through the winter. The start of the 2015 MLS season is, after all, roughly 80 days away. The clock is ticking on preparations for the new campaign, and every second that passes is a second teams can't get back.

The week immediately following the MLS Cup final is notoriously busy, especially when...

Can Raul have an impact in the ever-evolving New York soccer landscape?

Real Madrid legend Raul has been unveiled as the New York Cosmos' newest signing ahead of the 2015 North American Soccer league season.

After the rumors, then the announcement, Raul was finally unveiled in New York this week, at a carefully orchestrated Four Seasons news conference of the sort the franchise had once used when parading Pele. It was a choice of venue that invited us to think of the Cosmos as part of the city's heritage -- emphasizing the continuum of the 70's phenomenon with the 2014 version.

But the soccer landscape, let alone the city itself, is in a very different place than the Cosmos heyday. When I spoke directly...

Plenty of Expansion Draft surprises from NYC FC and Orlando City

48 year-old Scot Owen Coyle, formerly the manager at Burnley, Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic was unveiled as the new head coach of the Houston Dynamo.

Major League Soccer held the latest iteration of its expansion draft on Wednesday afternoon, allowing incoming teams New York City FC and Orlando City SC to pick from a list of available league talent ahead of next year's inaugural seasons.

The draft delivered surprising results, in large part because any result would be surprising; unlike other drafts that are mostly about taking the most talented or MLS-ready player available, the Expansion Draft presents an inscrutable list of considerations that...

Five story lines to watch as MLS heads straight into busy offseason

The LA Galaxy's Landon Donovan ended his storied MLS career with a 2-1 win over the New England Revolution in MLS Cup.

MLS is the league that never sleeps.

As soon as the Champagne stopped flowing at StubHub Center after the Los Angeles Galaxy beat the New England Revolution in MLS Cup Sunday, attention began turning to 2015. There were trades to be conducted -- with the likes of Sporting Kansas City, the Philadelphia Union, and expansion Orlando City especially active. There were expansion draft strategies to be crafted and a whole raft of players to be scouted. Before you know it, training camps will open.

StubHub Center was barely dried out from MLS Cup celebrations when players and owners went back to business this week.
