Pablo Being Shopped

United States midfielder/defender Pablo Mastroeni is apparently being shopped around by the Colorado Rapids this off-season, according to Steven Goff of the Washington Post. On his blog, Soccer Insider, Goff says that the leading team in the chase for Pablo is the expansion San Jose Earthquakes, but there is no rush to get the deal done as the off-season has just begun.
Mastroeni, 31, has started 107 games for Colorado since joining the team. He was the first overall selection of the 2002 MLS Allocation Draft, brought on by the contraction of his previous team, the Miami Fusion.

For the 'Nats, Mastroeni has made 57 appearances since earning his first cap in 2001, including selections to the '02, '05 & '07 Gold Cup squads, as well as the '02 & '06 World Cup teams. He notoriously received a red card in the Americans' second game of the group stage in Germany for a hard foul on Andrea Pirlo.
