That's a good point.

Actually, no, that's a very, very good point.

The Timbers — sans a good portion of their spine in Fanendo Adi, David Guzman, Liam Ridgewell, and Jake Gleeson — went on the road and earned a deserved draw against the hottest team in MLS.

There's no need for qualification or equivocation.

Breaking out of a slump isn't easy.

Just ask Fanendo Adi, who on Friday night completed his metamorphosis from poor form to being downright snakebit.

The Jack McInerney Era in Portland is over.

At long last, the Portland Timbers have parted ways with McInerney, whose fate appeared sealed after the Timbers drafted Jeremy Ebobisse and, as preseason progressed, most of the minutes behind Fanendo Adi went to Darren Mattocks.

The Timbers waived McInerney on the final day to do so, which, in light of the timing of the move, indicates the Timbers used the annual amnesty provision to wipe McInerney's contract off the salary cap.
