Offseason Hilarity

Ten Keys Recap, No. 6: Left Backs

+

Hello there, Chris Klute. We've been waiting for you for oh so long.

Ten Keys Recap, No. 7: Diego Calderon

1

Well, turns out he wasn't all that much of a key to the season after all. No complaints!

Ten Keys Recap, No. 8: Veteran Presence

+

Pablo Mastroeni didn't play a big role, but the rest of the vets on the squad did their jobs to help lift up the spirited and youthful core of the team in 2013.

Ten Keys Recap, No. 9: Starting Strong

2

So, I got this one completely wrong. Not that I'm complaining.

Ten Keys Recap, No. 10: Finishing

3

We're going to take a gander back at the 10 keys to the season I laid out in February. Number 10 was finishing, and... well, I think we all know how that went.

Ten Keys To The Season - No. 1: Ocsar Pareja

+

Oscar Pareja's tactics and management in 2013 will probably make or break how well the talented squad does.

Ten Keys To The Season - No. 2: Center Forwards

+

Edson Buddle and DeShorn Brown will likely be doing most of the heavy lifting at center forward this season. Can they out-do the mediocrity that came from Omar Cummings and Conor Casey in that spot...

Ten Keys To The Season - No. 3: Defensive Cohesion

+

The Rapids defense wasn't just bad because of a lack of good players last year, but they had some other problems as well.

Ten Keys To 2013 - No. 4: Martin Rivero

+

He's the spark of the offense, the guy that is supposed to blossom in 2013. Can Martin Rivero improve this season?
