Ruiz on the Move?

Galaxy forward Carlos Ruiz is not hurt and not here at RFK.

Word from a high-placed source is that Ruiz is on the trade block and several scenarios have been discussed. Chivas USA was very interested, but needs to clear salary cap space in order to complete a deal.

Don't be surprised if something happens in the coming weeks.

Well he is hurt compared to Reyna who is "hurt" but still plays soccer as off-the-pitch passion in the streets of NYC while the red bulls pay him to 1.6 mill to appear hurt in the line up. Another waste of money from MLS.

We need to clear some cap space, don't need him Buddle is on fire.

Does this mean that LA now has "cap room" for John Terry? :-)

No 270, it means LA is getting Ronaldinho.

So now LA can clear up some cap room that it never had.

Can't wait to see Henry suit up for the Sounders!
Maybe Bruce Arena will find some room on the squad for Steve Nash as well...

Maybe Chivas includes Wicky and an allocation? Gives LA a versatile midfielder with some bite and Chivas somebody else to score goals who isn't named Sacha Kljestan.

Maybe with a pay cut he will come to DC, but we dont need him.

I would like to see him traded for defensive help in the back line and at midfield.

Posted by: Ivan | June 29, 2008 7:06 PM | Report abuse

he's very old for his age. While no one can dispute his ability to score, I wouldn't want DCU to tie up salary cap on him. He doesn't take care of himself and with his passion for drinking, his body is breaking down.

Ruiz is going to Toronto. Conde for the McBride rights, Conde to LA for Ruiz.
LAG need quality defenders, TFC needs a decent striker. problems solved.

Is Maykel Galindo out long term?

Posted by: garbaggio | June 29, 2008 9:43 PM | Report abuse

Galindo is out another 4 weeks.
Ruiz is a bit over the hill BUT if the price is right why not give him a try

Over the hill? Isn't he 28? That's a bit early for "over the hill" even in soccer.

this is the least shocking news of the season considering Gullit mentioned about a month ago that Ruiz was surplus to requirements. (believe it was on sidelineviews)

Lalas said in an interview that Ruiz needed to score goals to prove he is worth keeping on the team. The way he said it gave me the impression that Lalas was actually thinking "..and he hasn't scored, therefore, he is gone" but dropped that part for the cameras.

I really hope they get rid of him. I was unhappy to see him back in LA and will be glad to see him go again.
