LISTEN: It's silly season in MLS. Just accept it. Days after the SuperDraft -- more on that later -- the New York Red Bulls traded their captain, Dax McCarty, to the Chicago Fire for a cool $400,000 in allocation money. That's enough to get Dave and Calen heated, but McCarty wasn't the only club icon to change hands. A.J. DeLaGarza will swap LA for Houston as well. We've also got your SuperDraft winners and losers and a lengthy one-v-one interview with LAFC executive vice president of soccer operations John Thorrington.
