RSL Soapbox contributor expansion draft poll results: Some unanimity, some controversy

New, 10 comments

Over the last week, we at RSL Soapbox have been compiling our expansion draft picks, and we're here now with the results of that. Included are our individual picks and some visual elements that are a bit of fun.

In this round of voting, we all voted to protect Kyle Beckerman, Tony Beltran, Luis Gil, Joao Plata, Nick Rimando, Alvaro Saborio, Carlos Salcedo, and Chris Schuler. That's not a bad spine for a team.

Here's the question: How'd we do? Did we, as a group, get something collectively wrong, or are we pretty tuned in?

Here, our picks are listed in alphabetical order. Not everyone submitted their lists in that order, of course, and so this won't tell you who each person thought was the most important to protect. I've linked each person to their Twitter account, so if you're interested in engaging with them, you've always got that option. We'll be watching the comments below, too.
