Crew 2, Union 1: one for Le Toux, two for Lenhart

Watch Steven Lenhart's diving header -- but first admire the quick build-up from the back and the striker's run to gain inside position on his defender as Emilio Renteria serves the cross. It was the go-ahead goal in the East-leading Columbus Crew's 2-1 away victory over the Philadelphia Union before 18,001 at PPL Park:

Get Microsoft Silverlight

Meantime, as a follow-up to this morning's report about D.C. United being in trade talks with the Crew, reserve defender Jed Zayner confirmed to the Columbus Dispatch that he is, indeed, heading to Washington.

Even before this match I thought Lenhart should be given an opportunity with the national side. At least take a look at him in camp or something.

Crew fan commenters don't like the trade.

Hooray! Zed Jayner. Or Jed Zayner. With a little luck, DCU will have 4 healthy defenders. Seriously, he's probably an improvement over Talley, who may have hung on a year too long.

Figures Lenhart would finally get some goals after I cut him from Fischy Fries.

After seeing the Inter FC Dallas game at a nice park..it finally struck me...I've officially declared I'm jealous. I would trade 2 stars for DCU to remain and be in a new stadium. However, I'm a realist. Baltimore Blast v2 or...let me guess...hmmm...should be related to the Bay or the anthem...Bays, Keys, Anthem, Blast, Bombs bursting..how about the John Waters?

Can we just call him JZ?

Could we trade anyone for Renteria?

18,001 on a Thursday night. I know, new team, new stadium, not a school night. Nevertheless, good job Union fans.

Coma and listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed.
A Columbus player, now he's wearing Black and Red.

"Come and listen.." Fingers not working well.

I don't practice Renteria.
I ain't got no crystal ball.

Does the DCU front office know something about Zayner that Columbus doesn't? At age 25, he's had the opportunity to establish himself as a regular first-teamer -- and he hasn't.

Did DCU give up a draft choice in 2011, when the club is likely to be drafting just behind the two expansion teams? Given the FO's dumb decisions, this wouldn't be beyond the realm of probability.

Does the FO expect Zayner to rescue the season and lead a charge to the playoffs? This is a lost season, and the club should be building for the future.

That said, best wishes to Zayner -- and fondest hopes that he blossoms in a new setting.

A strong crowd, an entertaining game, and a beautiful stadium for Philly.

It really shows how things have changed for the league -- for the better -- and how DC United has not been able to keep up.

Le Toux should've been called in by Blanc :)

""Second-quarter earnings at The Washington Post Co. rose nearly eight-fold compared with the same period of 2009,""

Time to ask for that raise, Steve.

Any computer guys able to tell me why Internet Explorer hasn't been able to open the Insider? It has said "can not open X web page, mission aborted" for weeks.

The rest of the league is living in the year 2010. However, DC United is the star of "That 90's Show".

"It’s God’s plan for my life," Zayner said (of the trade to DC).

Man, he must have sinned something awful.
