One of the things that Sigi does a couple times a year is put out a lineup that makes little sense to outside observers. Against the San Jose Earthquakes the biggest surprise was either the forward pairing or a right side that was built of Cordell Cato and Brad Evans. When asked about why the overall lineup was built he said "we decided to go with a lineup that was a little bit bigger, a lineup that we felt could hold up to that play and on the same token, not play guys who physically would put themselves in big jeopardy if they had to play.
