OK, that was a little bit of a surprise. In the best kept secret since Pearl Harbor, last night DC United traded away teenage sensation Freddy Adu to Real Salt Lake for a backup goalkeeper and a major allocation (in MLS-speak, that means a big-time player who lives outside the salary cap, basically). This comes on the heals of Freddy's two-week training stint at Manchester United and the belief that once he turns 18 this summer he'll be off to Europe. If that's true, DC made a great move to get an allocation and free up cap room, particularly given that Freddy's best positions are currently handled by the league's MVP (Christian Gomez) and a guy many consider the league's best player of all time (Jaime Moreno).
