Rapids Acquire Former Rookie Harden from LA
The Colorado Rapids announced they have acquired Ty Harden, a former Rookie standout for the LA Galaxy, in exchange for a draft pick. Harden, who started a rookie record 24 games for the Galaxy in 2007, stepped away from the game in 2008 to "pursue philanthropic endeavors." His father is the CEO of Goodwill. The purchase looks to have a lot to do with Paul Bravo coming on board. The Rapids will relinquish one of their two third round picks at Thursday's MLS SuperDraft in exchange.
