San Jose Wants No Wizards

Today was the MLS Expansion draft for San Jose to pick their first 10 players, in the rebirth of the Earthquakes. The 'Quakes did not choose any of the Wizards players that were left unprotected by the team. Here is the list of players that San Jose did choose.

1. Ryan Cochrane (Houston Dynamo)
2. Clarence Goodson (FC Dallas)
3. Ned Grabavoy (Columbus Crew)
4. James Riley (New England Revolution)
5. Joseph Vide (New York Red Bulls)
6. Ivan Guerrero (Chicago Fire)
7. Brian Carroll (D.C. United)
8. Jason Hernandez (Chivas USA)
9. Gavin Glinton (LA Galaxy)
10. Chris Pozniak (Toronto FC)

This left KC with Salt Lake and Colorado as the three teams that did not have a player chosen by the Earthquakes. Players like Jose Burciaga, Kevin Hartman, and Eloy Colombano, the most attractive potential picks for the 'Quakes will now return to the Wizards. I'd expect the Wizards to test the trade waters to see what they can possibly get for Burciaga. Hartman and Colombano I expect to be back in Wizards blue next season.
