Highlight of the Year: Need I say more than this?

Lowlight of the Year: I would love to know exactly what Moor did to lose the Captaincy.  Did he piss someone off at the Rapids?  Did he lose it because he questioned Pablo Mastroeni?  Or was it something else.  Whatever it was, the lowlight for Moor was seeing him stripped of his Captaincy.  What a joke.

2015 Grade (B+): Moor played center back, left back and right back this season without complaint and did his job well enough to earn an All-Star berth and still was one of the leaders on this team.  He missed the first five games due to injury (from the ACL injury in 2014) and missed further games at the end of the year due to another injury.  But when he was out there he was the best Rapids defender bar none and was instrumental in the defensive improvement from last year to this season.

2016 Outlook: The question is this for me--does Moor want to return to Colorado.  I would love him back in Burgundy, but something tells me he will move on to a winning franchise and a better quality coach.
