MLS Preseason

I generally like to get more than one point of view on whatever it is I read about. With that in mind, here are a couple of preseason looks at DC United. One from Avi Creditor on Ives website, the other from Drew Epperly at WV Hooligan.(note that Drew's piece is a week old, lots can happen in one week)
Continuing with the theme from above, a pair of looks at the KC Wizards. Again please note that Drew's look is now nearly a month old. First, Kristian Dyer of ESPNSoccernet. Then, the WV Hooligan view.
