Herculez Gomez to Puebla FC
This rumor started early yesterday, I didn't find a link at the time, but have found one now. Anyways, it appears that the first movement of the offseason for the Wizards is to lose Herculez Gomez to Mexican first division side, Puebla FC. According to the article, Puebla has signed Gomez to be a boost to their offense, which was apparently one of Puebla's biggest struggles this past season. While Gomez was dangerous many times on the field for the Wizards, his boost to the offense was not that much. In his 34 league games with the Wizards, Gomez only scored one goal (although it's a memorable one for Wizards fans). He added 5 assists as well. Gomez did appear to fall out with the Peter Vermes and the team late in the season, as Gomez appeared in only 1 of the Wizards last 5 games of the 2009 season, which could be part of the reason for his departure from KC.
