Noonan to Rapids

Two industry sources tell the Insider that the Columbus Crew has traded midfielder-forward Pat Noonan (five games, two starts, one assist) to the Colorado Rapids. Details to come.....

UPDATE: It's now official as the Rapids have sent a 2010 first-round draft pick and allocation money to the Crew for Noonan.

What's this about having sources? This isn't the 20th century.

let me guess, those industries are cement and aluminum?

This could be a major move for Colorado. It might get lost in the Confederations Cup shuffle, but the Rapids will have Noonan, Cummings (who, while not exactly the most clinical finisher, is fast and has become a decent set-up man) and Casey. That's a top tier group of forwards in MLS.

I'm shocked by this, unless Noonan requested a trade to get more PT. I thought the Crew would try to stock up depth for the CCL.

Salary dump?

I know Noonan's a former USMNT prospect and all, but a forward with 2 starts and 5 appearances for a first round pick? Looks like the Rapids got swindled again.
