Pictures of Pareja seem to be relevant to pretty much every story recently, eh? Good thing we have more than one.
The Colorado Rapids have had a whirlwind of positive activity in the past couple of weeks, including a very strong draft that got them Tony Cascio and Kohei Yamada along with a signing of Hunter Freeman and of course a new head coach signing.
Lost a bit in all the whirlwind was the possible signing of Columbian international midfielder Jamie Castrillon. Castrillon's possible signing was announced back on January 10th but with the draft soon after the idea seemed to get shelved in our minds, but it looks like the Rapids remained hard at work. Jamie reportedly flew into DIA yesterday and met with head coach Oscar Pareja, a big move that seems to indicate that a signing will be in the very near future.
With three new midfield signings if Castrillon goes through - all of which are oriented toward offense - this offseason, it looks like the new offense oriented strategy that was predicted when Pareja got into the manager's position is indeed going to come to fruition as soon as next season.
