There is no doubt that Fredy's move to Vancouver is a pretty big deal in a significant rivalry, but he is not the first major MLS player to defect to a perceived enemy.

While it's not entirely clear what brought on the emotion, Brad Evans made it clear on Twitter that he isn't interested in going anywhere.

New York City FC has signed 29 year-old Argentinian Maximiliano Moralez as their third designated player.

DC United has signed a deal with Audi for the naming rights to their upcoming new stadium.

FourFourTwo is asking if 2017 might be the year of the homegrown player for MLS. Obviously there have already been some well-known homegrown successes, but will this year be the year where the floodgates open?

The LA Galaxy's Gyasi Zardes has had to undergo a surgery as a result of an injury obtained with the national team. After missing the end of last season, he'll now almost certainly miss the beginning of this one.
