Bone to pick with the Union

Well, it’s happened again. The Union got totally Bone-d in the Re-Entry Draft. The Union came away from the draft with their newest player: Corben Bone. Your first reaction to this news was probably pretty similar to mine: "Who the hell is Corben Bone?"

Some googling quickly revealed that he is a midfield player from Chicago who went to Wake Forest. Mr. Bone was also a member of the USMNT U-17 squad back in 2005, which was coached by none other than John Hackworth.

I won’t get into the whole "Hackworth just likes guys from his youth camp even if they aren’t good" argument. But what are we doing drafting a player who couldn’t crack Chicago’s starting lineup? It’s not like Chicago is a championship team that has all-stars on their bench. Sure, we might not be paying him a ton of money, but it’s still money we could be paying to a Roger Torres or a Kléberson.

We’re also in need of a left back, but that doesn’t seem to be much of an issue for our coaching staff. Unless we’re planning on taking Bone and transforming him into a left back (this is a joke, let’s not ever consider doing this), I think this is a poor pickup for the Union.
