Columbus Crew Win Lottery

No, it wasn't the $390 million Mega Millions jackpot, but the Columbus Crew got a nice consolation price today: The Crew won the weighted lottery held to determine which team would get Robbie Rogers, who is returning from Dutch club SC Heerenveen. Columbus had the best odds of winning the Rogers lottery, with each team being assigned a probability in reverse order of recent performance.

Rogers, 19, will be signed to a developmental contract. "It is tremendous to be able to add a young attacking talent who is going to be a mainstay for the U.S. in the upcoming U-20 World Cup," head coach Sigi Schmid said. Rogers tallied one goal and three assists in the recent CONCACAF Qualifying Tournament in Panama.
