Joevin Jones is only starter from MLS Cup final to be unprotected.

Los Angeles FC will have a couple former captains to choose from the Seattle Sounders in the Dec. 12 Expansion Draft. Free agent Brad Evans being unprotected was expected. Slightly more surprising, but not entirely unexpected as seen in this year's protectinator results, is that Designated Player Osvaldo Alonso is also on Seattle's unprotected list.

Well, that was brutal. Talk about draws that feel like losses. I won't rehash too many of the painful details, but know that last week, the rivalry match ended in a 2-2 draw with goals from Dempsey, Joevin Jones, Asprilla, and Adi. There was also a red card to Brad Evans.

Surprisingly, though many of you predicted a draw, there were no 2-2 predictions, only 3-3 or 1-1.

The concept of the Ideal XI is platonic. It's like a perfect triangle. It only exists in our thoughts, our minds. As we so carefully craft strawmen as simulacrums of real conversation, we continue to ignore that the Seattle Sounders have more playoff-quality starters than they do positions on the field.
