He led the team in goals this season, but is he better off the bench?

When D.C. United acquired Lamar Neagle from Seattle, they were getting a player who had scored 21 goals and added 15 assists over the previous three seasons with the Sounders. Playing primarily in wide midfield, he became a regular starter from day one, often opposite Patrick Nyarko, and contributed nine goals and six assists over the course of the year.
