When the New York Red Bulls released their decidedly inexperienced starting lineup Saturday night ahead of the season opener against the Portland Timbers, it raised a few eyebrows. The biggest head scratcher was the start given to the Red Bull's 17-year-old homegrown player, Ben Mines.

Over the course of the last two months, the deal seemed in doubt from the outside, but the Red Bulls never wavered.
