MetroStars announce unprotected list for upcoming Expansion Draft
Fans can follow the proceedings Friday on ESPNews at 4 p.m. ET
MetroStars Media Relations
SECAUCUS, N.J. - The MetroStars announced their unprotected list of players for the upcoming MLS expansion draft. The second expansion draft in MLS history will be held this Friday, November 19 at 4:00 p.m. ET and will be televised live on ESPNews. The two new teams, Club Deportivo Chivas USA (Los Angeles, CA) and Real Salt Lake (Salt Lake City, UT) will have the following unprotected MetroStars available for selection in the draft: M Pablo Brenes, F Sergio Galvan Rey, D Tim Regan, M Joselito Vaca, GK Jonny Walker, GK Zach Wells, and D Craig Ziadie.
The 2004 MLS Expansion Draft will consist of 10 rounds, with CD Chivas USA picking first followed in each round by Real Salt Lake.

All current MLS teams were able to protect 12 players on their senior roster from being drafted in addition to the team's developmental players, which are automatically protected. Within the 12 protected senior players, teams must protect all but one of their senior international players. Once a player is selected in the draft, the team from which he departs can then take a player from their unprotected list, and claim him as protected. After three players are taken from one team, no other players can be drafted from that team's pool of unprotected players.

SECAUCUS, N.J. - The MetroStars lost midfielder Pablo Brenes and defender Craig Ziadie in today's 2004 Major League Soccer Expansion Draft. Real Salt Lake selected Brenes with their third pick of the draft, while CD Chivas USA selected Ziadie with their seventh pick.
Brenes, a member of the 2004 Costa Rican Olympic Team, was acquired by the MetroStars on June 4, 2004 as a Transitional International player, with a Discovery Pick. Once acquired, he saw action in 14 regular season games, starting five.

Ziadie was acquired, along with midfielder Mark Lisi, by the MetroStars on May 9, 2002 in a trade with D.C. United in exchange for midfielder Peter Villegas and defender Orlando Perez. A member of the Jamaican National Team, Ziadie played in 15 games for the Metros in 2004, starting 14. In these games he tallied one assist.

The MetroStars were allowed to protect 12 senior players and all developmental players for today's draft. In accordance with league rules, the Metros were allowed to protect an additional player when Brenes and Ziadie were selected. The MetroStars chose to protect goalkeeper Zach Wells in the third round and goalkeeper Jonny Walker in the seventh round.

The MLS trade window opens again at 9:00 a.m. ET on Monday, November 22 and does not close until the trade deadline on September 15, 2005, in line with the closing of the second international transfer window.

Ernie Stewart was good, but personally I wish he'd retire.

He's lost his pace and his skills, and simply relies on the weakness of opposition to look good.
