Extratime: Are MLS teams star shopping in Mexico? Does conference setup make sense?

Listen to the latest episode:

River Plate's Marcelo Gallardo to Inter Miami is OFF ... or is it? Doyle isn't so sure, especially because the logistics around a Patrick Vieira move from OG Nice to MLS isn't cut and dried. We do know Miami will enter MLS in the Eastern Conference, while Nashville SC head West for their first season (perhaps more). Does that make sense? Should Chicago have taken their place? Did the Supporters' Shield take a hit based on the new schedule?

Also in this show ... 22 Under 22 snubs and the outlook on young players in MLS, the Fire still don't have a head coach or a GM or any DPs, MLS teams reportedly shop for Liga MX stars, best bet to make Concacaf Champions League history and an early look at SuperDraft prospects.
