    Who will the Revs protect? Who will they lose?

    I had predicted in another thread that the Revs will lose Cropper. If Burns were smart, he would trade Cropper before the draft. I don't think he is.

    Psst, Mike. You don't have to wait until the 4-hour trade window on Dec 9th to work out a trade. You just can't complete it until then...

    I noted this elsewhere, but the five teams that had a player picked last year can't have a player chosen this year.

    Zach Herivaux and Issac Angking are homegrown players, and are ineligible for selection. It is unclear if Scott Caldwell still counts as one, and I do jot think Diego does anymore.

    With 10 slots the easy ones are:
    Turner
    Delamea
    Caicedo
    Penilla
    Fagundez

    You probably also protect Mancienne, Farrell, Bunbury, and Rowe. You could use the 10th spot on Agudelo, but only if you think having his rights later will be worth more than 50k now.

    The Revs buy-down Caldwell's salary with xAM to keep him on the supplemental roster:

    So he is exempt. Diego is not.

    It'd be surprising if Cincinnati pick Diego (or Agudelo) as he may go overseas anyway, and Tierney may retire and just came off injury, so all 3 of them don't likely need protection. Mancienne is so expensive he likely doesn't need protection either.

    Diego has a year left on his contract.

    Agudelo is out of contract, but the Revs still hold his MLS rights Even if he signs overseas, Cincy could take a chance that he'd come back to MLS in the future.

    Mancienne is the highest paid defender in MLS, and hasn't proven he is worth that (so far). Still, Cincy has money to burn right now, so they might take a chance.

    You'd pick either of them to have their rights. Even if Juan leaves while being out of contract, if he decides to return to MLS then the league considers NE the team who has his rights. Any team that wants to sign him would have to make a deal with NE to get him. If they think they could get more than 50k (what the league gives them if he gets taken in the expansion draft) by trading his rights later then you would protect him

    Diego's year is an option year - I interpret that to mean that he may or may not return to MLS.

    Revs' option, which they already exercised.

    They need to have a better setup of the roster for expansion teams. In the case of Cincinnati, they like other existing teams that were "promoted," like Minnesota, Orlando,Montreal, Vancouver, Portland, etc. they would be given first crack at any of their own roster. If they think that, say, 5 guys in their current team are MLS-calibre players, those become their first 5 picks. If they are entitled to 11 picks overall, they only get 6 more. All the remaining players on their roster become free agents who can sign with the USL team of their choice, or finagle an invite to an MLS camp if they can manage it.

    This does not apply to the teams being created from scratch, like LAFC, Atlanta, NYCFC, Toronto, Philadelphia, etc. who would get their full allotment of expansion picks.

    They keep cutting back, I get the feeling that by the time they get to Austin (or wherever team 27 turns out to be), the expansion draft will be eliminated.
