Rumor: Joe-Max to West Team?
U.S. international Joe-Max Moore and all time New England Revolution leading scorer is rumored to be traded to a Western conference team in order to bring cover for the NE defense, as Carlos Llamosa is injured.

In exchange for Moore, the unknown Western team would trade a U.S. international defender/midfielder. The possibilities are limited. Let’s break it down by team:

Kansas City Wizards- The trade to K.C. would seem unlikely, as the Wizards would be looking more for a striker with the injuries to their two leading scorers (Igor Simutenkov and Preki.) However, K.C. could offer three potential players who could fit the definition of a U.S. international Mid./Defender (Kerry Zavagnin, Chris Klein, and Nick Garcia.) However, all three are vital to Bob Gansler’s team, so this trade seems unlikely.

Dallas Burn- This trade to Dallas also seems highly unlikely, as the only U.S. international Dallas could offer for this trade would be Cory Gibbs. Gibbs, the youngest American to score a goal in the Bundesliga, was recently acquired by Dallas in the off season, so it seems unlikely that they would trade him so quickly.

Colorado Rapids- Having recently waived forward Chris Carrieri due to salary cap problems, adding Moore to their roster wouldn’t help their problem much. The only apparent player who could be a U.S. international is Pablo Mastroeni, and the Argentina native seems to be a main-stay in the midfield of Tim Hankinson.

San Jose Earthquakes- An eye for an eye…and a veteran for a veteran. To me, this trade, if it were to occur, seems most likely. Jeff Agoos and Joe-Max Moore are both veterans of the USMNT and both occupy a large chunk of their team’s salary cap, so this trade could potentially work. Richard Mulrooney is also a U.S. international, but Moore for Mulrooney doesn’t seem as even as an Agoos for Moore trade.

Los Angeles Galaxy- The most likely player who could fit the definition of U.S. international is Danny Califf. Cobi Jones and Sasha Victorine are also internationals, but are more offensive minded. I wouldn’t count on a Moore for Califf trade, as it doesn’t seem likely Sigi Schmid would throw away Califf’s youth (and defensive tenacity) in exchange for Moore’s veteran experience and high salary.

For now, the trade seems unlikely on all levels as there are few players who have the potential to be traded, and NE director of communication, Brad Feldman, indicated that he is unaware of any potential moves for Moore.
