Podcast: Changing the Rules Might Mean Homegrown Players Make LA Galaxy Money

Could changing the rules give Gyasi Zardes a change of scenery from the LA Galaxy to Europe? And how important is Sebastian Lletget to 2018?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — It’s another offseason show that keeps you in touch with your LA Galaxy as they attempt to undergo massive changes.

Your hosts, Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter, are back to discuss all the latest Galaxy news and how that applies to this extended offseason.

Josh and Kevin will start by taking a passing glance and what it means to MLS that the USMNT isn’t going to the World Cup. Will viewers forget about MLS because the US isn’t in play? Or will the majority of people who follow MLS simply continue to follow MLS? How linked are the two fan-bases?

And Josh will let you know that one Galaxy player, not the Dos Santos brothers, might be going to the world cup despite not having the best year with the club. 2017 will be remembered as one crazy year!

Next, the guys will talk about some proposed rule changes that might allow the Galaxy to profit off of their Homegrown players. Could transfers across the world soon include a lot more MLS players? And could the MLS owners finally be willing to let individual teams keep the money they make from developing talent for players around the league?

Is this all signaling that MLS is ready to become a world league?

Finally, the guys will take a look at the demons that face the Galaxy when they attempt to work Sebastian Lletget back into the lineup. Having just seen a player struggle to come back after surgery, does finding a way to make Lletget a very valuable piece in this 2018 lineup have you waking up in the middle of the night?

With only 77 days left in the Galaxy’s offseason, is Sigi Schmid ready to make some moves?
