Dynamo Have Made a Trade and I Have Speculative Theories

The Dynamo have acquired an unknown 24-year old defensive midfielder from an unknown team for a conditional draft pick.

No seriously.

The details came from Jesus Ortiz on Twitter, but that's all we know right now. The player has apparently not been informed of the trade so that's delaying the press release...but that won't stop up from speculating!

My most likely candidates are Dax McCarty, Nathan Sturgis, or Joseph Nane...but that's only because these are all the 24-year old players currently listed on MLS rosters that I believe could be, or are considered defensive midfielders. I'd really like to see Dax in Houston...is that odd? Unfortunately, McCarty doesn't make sense in terms of salary for the Dynamo's cap space.

However it could be Rodrigo Lopez, Austin da Luz, Brad Ring, Daniel Keat, Milos Stojcev, Keon Daniel, Steven Beitashour, Justin Morrow or Brad Nielsen and I'm just not properly aware of their positional place in the midfield...but they are all midfielders. I'm ruling out Robbie Rogers, Emmanuel Ekpo, Eric Avila, Sal Zizzo, Will Johnson and Marco Pappa because they aren't defensive midfielders and I doubt any could be obtained for a conditional draft pick anyway.

So there ya go, chew on that while we wait for the official announcement.
