Ben Olsen doesn't have many choices to make for Wednesday's game

D.C. United is now in the middle of three games in seven days, a stretch that would normally presage some serious rotation in Ben Olsen's lineup. I think there will be less rotation than normal, for two reasons: the first is that, due to injuries, there isn't as much that Olsen can do with his lineup; the second is that there is an international break right after United's match against Toronto FC, so there will be two weeks between games after this three in seven stretch.
