Just got off the phone with Mr. Boswell, Houston's newest defender. Unlike some United player departures in the past, this is an amicable split. I can't tell you how many times I have spoken with exiting players -- here and elsewhere in the league -- who have grumbled about lack of communication, being blind-sided, etc.
Boswell confirms that, in his scheduled meeting with coaches at the end of the season, he requested a trade. "It was in my best interests to move on. They found a situation that helps them out and helps me out. It was handled really well and just goes to show what a class organization United is."
Reflecting on his time with United, Boz added: "They gave me an opportunity, and I will always remember that. The fans are the best and I did my best on the field. I leave with nothing but positives. It was a great experience in D.C."
As for joining the two-time defending champs, he said: "I'm really excited. It's the best trade I could have asked for. I can't wait to get started down there."
And, yes, he said his Web site will go with him to Houston.
What will you remember most about Boswell in D.C.? His goal against Chelsea? His rise from obscurity? His goofy appearances on Steinberg's Sports Bog? Please share.
