Toronto trades for Nick Garcia and MLS rights to Ali Gerba
TFC sent a third round draft pick to San Jose for defender Nick Garcia and the MLS rights to Canadian striker Ali Gerba. I am not convinced that this is the end of the trades or signings and roster moves, which makes it hard to form an opinion. Garcia is a veteran (yet four years younger than Tyrone Marshall) and a defender (with Attakora hurt, Brennan hurt and Velez wonky after a rough game and Serioux playing hurt) and we all know that TFC needed defending help.
As for Ali Gerba, just based on his play for Canada he seems to have a scoring touch. He may not have a world beating touch, but here's hoping that it is a "better than what we've seen lately" touch around the net.
