If Carlos Bocanegra is signed by Sporting, you heard it first from me. If it doesn't happen, which is much more likely, don't ridicule me - because this is based on hardly anything.
"VERY limited # of tix left for tomorrow's 7 PM match. #USMNT's Carlos Bocanegra (@bocaboca3) will be there. Will you?"Because I don't follow baseball, I had no idea why he was planning to be in Kansas City. Now I've found out that he's going to be in the celebrity All Star Game.
serious financial turmoil. I don't think it's too crazy to wonder whether Bocanegra might want to find a more stable club to call home. At 33, he's beginning to enter the final years of his career, and might want to conclude his playing days in the United States - his motherland.
I'll be interested to see if Bocanegra makes a move to America during the summer transfer window. I would be extremely pleased if he ends up with Sporting KC. Honestly, Collin has been reckless lately. I am a fan of him, but he's been hurting more than helping. With Matt Besler healthy, I'm hoping Collin becomes more steady. Either way, I sure wouldn't mind to see the pairing of Besler and Bocanegra. With Carlos in the back four, Sporting's defense could easily be the best in the league. Keep in mind, Sporting would have to work through the allocation process to get Carlos - something that would involve some sort of trade.
Again, at this point, a move to SKC for Carlos Bocanegra is hardly justified at all. Would I be surprised if it happened? Not really. I can only hope.

Think Bocanegra could ever end up playing in Sporting Blue? Would Bocanegra be a good addition to the team? Share any comments you have below. You may also laugh at me if you think this is ridiculous.
