- Red Bulls Past - Recently departed defender Diego Jimenez scored the only goal and helped keep a clean sheet in leading Tecos to a 1-0 Interliga win over Morelia. Good for Diego, tough for Red Bulls supporters. When wondering what will be missed more, his stalwart defense or new-found goal-scoring touch, we vote "both of the above."
- Red Bulls Present - More indications that big Dave van den Bergh will be back with the Red Bulls in 2009, plus even more good news on a possible extension for Juan Pablo Angel. Time to renew those season tickets, and pick up a replica jersey while you're at it!
- Red Bulls Future - Wunderkind Matt Kassel will spend at least one more year at the University of Maryland, yet still the Red Bulls retain his MLS rights. Considering the youngster is a holding midfielder - NYRB's most crowded position - the option to stay in school, defend the NCAA championship, train with the pros in the summer and get 25+ starts in the college season sounds like an ideal situation for all parties involved.
Big thanks to Mr. Lewis for so much good content on a January Monday. Well done, good sir!
