It all happened so fast: a mere forty minutes after Alexi Lalas tweeted that Marcelo Sarvas was traded to the Colorado Rapids, the LA Galaxy have confirmed the deal.
The Galaxy are expected to use their newfound third-place spot in the allocation order to make another attempt at signing Sacha Kljestan, who has become somewhat of a white whale for Bruce Arena and staff.

Galaxy fans hoping that LA’s bottom-of-the-barrel draft ranking would make for a slow news day may be in for a shock. Alexi Lalas, FOX analyst and former LA Galaxy president, is reporting that Marcelo Sarvas may be headed for Colorado:
I'm told that @LAGalaxy midfielder Marcelo Sarvas has been traded to @ColoradoRapids for allocation money and allocation ranking.
