Last night we heard that a deal for forward Omar Bravo was mere hours away, today reports out of Mexico indicate that a deal is now done. But those looking to see Bravo in Wizards blue this season look like they'll have to wait. The reports say that the Wizards will loan Bravo to Chivas for the rest of 2010. This was a deal that Chivas had wanted, so that Bravo could play in the Copa Libertadores final and the Apertura season down in Mexico. Bravo, whose loan with Chivas ended today will return to Chivas again on loan. This time instead of being loaned from his club in Spain, it'll be from the Wizards.
Take the news for what you will, because the Google translation of the article does say that the team is currently in last place (which they are not) and have no chance of qualifying for the playoffs (it's still a long shot, but they still have a chance).
I am not sure what to make of this news. On one side I'm happy that the team is working to bring in a designated player. On the other side, I had hoped it would have been for this season to help in a playoff push, especially with the two open roster spots that we currently have after the loaning of Sunil Chhetri and Aaron Hohlbein. Guess we'll have to wait and see on final word of the deal, either way this entire thing is giving me a headache.
