Wizards Fantasy Draft Round 15 & 16

The final two rounds of the Wizards fantasy draft are now complete. In the next few days I'll have lineups and a write up from each of the draft participants talking about their team and lineup. Once that's posted, I will have the poll posted for voting.

Here are the previous rounds.
1 & 2
3 & 4
5 & 6
7 & 8
9 & 10
11 & 12
13 & 14

15(1). Team Shook - Eloy Colombano - Eloy was signed in August of 07 and he added bench depth and speed to Kansas City. He plays wide midfield and striker and will provide depth for Team Shook. Eloy came off the bench 9 times to provide a spark late in games. He did start one game for the Wizards. In his 10 appearances he gathered 1 goal and 1 assist.

15(2). Team DTB - Paul Wright - The fastest man in MLS, Wright was selected in the 3rd round of the original supplemental draft back in 1996. Wright spent just over 3 seasons with the Wizards appearing in 83 games for the Wizards and scoring 11 goals for the boys in blue over that time period.

15(3). Bravado FC - Mike Sorber - "While our assistants thought that it could serve the team better to snatch up the two best remaining goalkeepers for trade bait with the other two teams in the draft, we remember that in the end, this is a friendly enterprise," said GM John Roushkolb. "While each team has their own priorities for choosing players, it's not necessarily fair to punish those who don't see goalkeeping as the necessity that it is. At least, not any more than we already have."

While he played just one season with the Wizards, (Wiz at the time) he still ranks in the top 30 point scorers for Kansas City, tallying four goals and six assists in 24 appearances. He was traded to the MetroStars for the forgettable Damian Silvera, but his heart was obviously still in Kansas City as he mustered just six goals in his next 100 MLS matches.

16(1). Bravado FC - Gary Glasgow - In his three years in Kansas City, he saw little time in the first team after struggling with injuries in the 2001 season. The Trinidadian international made an impact in the 2002 CONCACAF Champions' Cup, picking up a goal and two assists in four appearances in the competition, with his helpers coming in both the home and away legs of the Wizards' tie with W Connection FC of Trinidad and Tobago.

16(2). Team DTB - Chris Snitko - Drafted by the Wizards in the first round of the 96 MLS College Draft, Snitko didn't join the team until 97 (because he was allowed to play with the US Olympic team in 96). He played mostly as a backup behind Mike Ammann until the 1999 season, when he became the defacto starter after Tony Meola went down with injury. Snitko played only 26 games for the Wizards before being traded to Chicago. He was also recently seen practicing with the team during preseason.

16(3). Team Shook - Garth Lagerwey - Lagerwey was an original member of the 96 Wiz, and by midseason had supplanted Pat Harrington as the first choice keeper. Lagerwey would start 22 reular season games and all 5 playoff games for the team. Lagerwey was then supplanted by Team Shook teammate Mike Ammann and moved on to Dallas and Miami to finish his career before moving upstairs as the GM of Real Salt Lake.
