Hair Apparent

Two gentlemen known as much for their hair as their soccer prowess have swapped teams in a deal leaked late Monday evening on Soccer by Ives. Kyle Beckerman has been sent to Real Salt Lake, with the Rapids getting Mehdi Ballouchy in return.Ballouchy, 24, was the second overall pick in the 2006 MLS SuperDraft and had been moved into the role of attacking midfielder in Utah. But after starting 14 games, the Moroccan has zero goals and zero assists to his name in 2007 and just two for his career.
Beckerman, 25, has just returned from national team duty at Copa America. The dreaded midfielder tallied a career-high seven goals in 31 games last year and has one goal and two assists to his name thus far in 2007.

I don't see the point of this trade? Below average midfielder for below average midfielder. Between two horrible teams?
