Just try to predict what's going to happen next in MLS. You can't do it. Kellyn Acosta to Colorado? Yeah, right. And yet here we are, breaking down a trade nobody saw coming, pondering the best path forward for wunkerkind Alphonso Davies in the wake of interest from Bayern Munich and mulling why Justin Meram would move back to Columbus after leaving just months ago.
