Cesar Romero Still With Colorado Going Into Preseason

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Of all the trialists that the team has looked at this off-season -- Jamie Smith totally doesn't count -- Cesar Romero seems to be the most likely candidate to stick with the team going into the season.

We're just over two weeks away from first kick against FC Dallas, and the majority of the names that we've seen float through the team as trialists have come and gone. Cesar Romero appears to have had the most sticking power, so it's interesting to see how he does going into the final couple of pre-season games.

Romero, a former Chivas USA striker, was added onto the roster on trial prior to the Desert Friendlies. He showed fairly well in the couple of appearances he got, putting a few solid strikes on net against the Houston Dynamo in the second Desert Friendlies game. Thanks to that, and probably thanks to some good work in practices with the team, he has stuck around later than guys like Jimmy Maurer and Walter Martinez.

Colorado is in a situation where they could probably still use another forward for depth purposes, and Romero is an option that would be cheap without needing to see much of the field -- he only made 12 appearances for the anemic Chivas USA offense in 2012, most of them coming as a sub. One would assume that with Colorado's offense being far more likely to produce good goal totals compared to Chivas USA's offense, he'd see even less of the field for us.

We'll see if Oscar Pareja puts Romero out against his former team tonight. If he does, and Romero shows well, it could add to the argument to keep the guy around in 2013 as yet another depth option.
