We're already all aware that the injury situation that the Rapids have faced this season has been absolutely farcical. Murphy's Law has taken a shining to the Rapids, and that's left just about every single player on the team with some manner of injury as we've gone along.
I don't think we need to hear just how bad it is over and over again, but I noticed something yesterday while preparing for this weekend's Toronto FC game: you could actually put together a nearly all first-choice starting XI out of the injured names we've seen this season. Behold:
Deshorn Brown - Edson Buddle
Jaime Castrillon - Martin Rivero - Kevin Harbottle
Pablo Mastroeni - Hendry Thomas
Anthony Wallace - Diego Calderon - Marvell Wynne
Other than the fact that Oscar Pareja probably won't be playing a 3-5-2 any time soon, Drew Moor being absent is about the only problem I would have with that starting XI if everyone on the team was in full health. Welp.
