Another howler for Dave Kasper.

In other news, I'm really missing Goff's coverage of United.

I'm actually really missing the Washington Post's coverage of United!

I'm relishing the lack of United coverage. I had enough dwelling on bad news over the Spring.

It Takes More . . . journalists.

I mean, I know he was not living up to it at all, but unless another high price guy comes in, I'm surprised they straight cut him.

I was just making fun of Castillo yesterday on another thread, but even I am surprised they cut him. When he performed poorly I thought his signing was a cynical effort to sell tickets to Salvadorans. Now that they cut him, it's clear that his signing was a cynical effort to alienate Salvadoran fans all over again. Give credit to the front office: they always have a plan.

Castillo was released? I thought he was just on loan.

Neither here nor there for me, but I was hoping for more.

So, Burch will be back on the field at left back? Who's going to be left mid?

Well played benonthehill.

I cannot believe how bad Castillo was. I really thought that was going to work out. There goes attendance.

Emilio is probably the next contestant to be voted off the island. I'm sure Paul Tenorio would love to devote more time to us, but the Post has him tracking the latest misadventures of Fat Albert Haynesworth.
