News started to leak out last night on through Thad, and today it was officially announced that the Missouri Comets have added to their roster by signing former Sporting KC midfielder, Craig Rocastle. Rocastle had been waived by Sporting at the end of this past season after two years with the club. Rocastle should be available for Friday's match up against Milwaukee and then in Wichita to take on the Wings on Saturday.
Rocastle certainly gives the Comets an interesting addition. Rocastle gives the Comets a calm and composed midfielder. But indoor isn't always a calm and composed game, it's a very fast paced game. It'll be interesting to see how Rocastle adjusts to the change in style the indoor game provides. The other question would probably have to do with Rocastle's knees, but the big thing he does provide is a large amount of experience and a big imposing body to help man up on some of the bigger players in the league.
