Today, D.C. United announced that the team has traded a natural 2015 second round MLS draft pick and an additional, conditional draft pick to the Vancouver Whitecaps for defender/midfielder Alain Rochat. The Quebec-born Rochat was a Whitecap MLS original, and by some accounts was the best player in their woeful inaugural season.
D.C. United desperately needs better players at almost every position. We could also use some experience, some consistency, and some leadership. None of this is news to anyone that has seen us play.
In what is hopefully the first step of many, United addressed those needs at left back. The Black-and-Red sent a 2015 2nd Round SuperDraft pick and a conditional 2016 pick to the Vancouver Whitecaps in exchange for Swiss-Canadian left back Alain Rochat.

HOUSTON With a 32-game home unbeaten streak in the balance, the Houston Dynamo showed once again that they can pull out some late magic.
Down a goal in the second half to the dangerous Vancouver Whitecaps, things changed in Houston's favor in the 55th minute when Barnes put a bow on a sublime sequence down the right flank from Will Bruin, Kofi Sarkodie and Ricardo Clark to pull the Dynamo even with a powerful header past Joe Cannon to draw Houston level.
The Houston Dynamo were without three starters due to international duty, but that didn't slow down the men in orange or stop them from continuing their home dominance. Behind goals from Giles Barnes and Warren Creavalle, the Dynamo (2-1-0, 6 points) handed the Vancouver Whitecaps (2-1-0, 6 points) their first loss of the season with a 2-1 win.
