D.C. United will have to practice some roster rotation, but not in tonight's game against Toronto FC.

After resting most of their starters against Fulham FC, D.C. United's starters return to action tonight against Toronto FC. This begins a brutal stretch for D.C. United, with an August crammed with MLS play as well as the beginning of the Concacaf Champions Leage, and with a September that is only slightly less packed.

An early red card saw Fabian Espindola go off for two goals and an assist in DC United's best offensive performance since August 2012.

Looks like D.C. United has figured out how to play a man-up.

A week after squandering a 90th-minute lead with a man-advantage in Columbus, the Black and Red thoroughly punished 10-man FC Dallas Saturday, 4-1, in a relentless offensive showing.

Ives Galarcep, of Soccer By Ives fame, is reporting that D.C. United has sold Canadian center back Dejan Jakovic to an unnamed Japanese team for a small fee. While the allocation money that it generates will be minimal at best, the move does save United almost $300,000 in salary cap charges and makes the reasoning behind Wednesday's selection of Nana Attakora more clear.
