The Colorado Rapids aren't about to stand pat as the MLS playoff race heats up.
Just two days after sending Mehdi Ballouchy to the New York Red Bulls for Macoumba Kandji, the Rapids have traded injured midfielder Colin Clark and an allocation to the Houston Dynamo for veteran winger Brian Mullan.
The Rapids instantly boost their midfield with a proven right winger in Mullan, who should help provide some service to the forward line of Conor Casey, Omar Cummings and Kandji. The Dynamo make the move with an eye toward the future after falling out of playoff contention.
Clark has endured torn ACLs each of the past two seasons, but had established himself as one of the league's best young wingers before the injuries.
What do you think of the trade? Think the Rapids are in position to make the playoffs now? Like the trade for Houston? Surprised there haven't been more trades at the MLS Trade Deadline?
