The Colorado Rapids wasted no time in finding Conor Casey’s replacement.
Minutes after the conclusion of the 2012 MLS Re-Entry Draft, the Rapids announced they traded for LA Galaxy forward Edson Buddle. Colorado dealt allocation money and its first round pick in the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft in exchange for the World Cup veteran.
Buddle had become surplus to requirements with the Galaxy and failed to produce much when he did see the field in 2012. He started 10 of the 19 games he played in during the regular season, scoring three goals and assisting on one other.
What do you think of the Rapids acquiring Buddle? Do you see him succeeding in Colorado? Think LA could have gotten more for him?
