MLS Teams and Players Keeping Busy

Landon Donovan is continuing to make an impression on Bayern Munich, as he scored an injury time goal (video above) in his second friendly with the German giants. His home club is staying busy as well, by trading a conditional draft pick to Columbus for midfielder Stefani Miglioranzi. Ives Galarcep reports that they are close to trading for Red Bull midfielder Mike Magee, in this post about the Red Bulls trading Dave Van den Bergh to FC Dallas for speedy forward Dominic Oduro. Last but not least, it looks like San Jose will be resigning veteran goalkeeper Joe Cannon to a new deal. It is nice to see LA making some shrewd moves instead of going for the big name signing and San Jose intelligently bring back one of the best goalkeepers to play in MLS. I also think that the NY-Dallas trade will work out for both teams as NY clears cap room and gets the speedy forward they have been wanting, while Dallas picks up the veteran left sided player that Schellas Hyndman has been talking about since he first got hired.
