Podcast: Saving Face. Can the LA Galaxy Survive with the dos Santos’ in Liga MX?

On today’s show, your hosts discuss the ways the dos Santos brothers could embarrass the LA Galaxy. Are any of them good?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The players have been released and the LA Galaxy now officially enter the 2017-2018 offseason. With major changes in the wind, could Jonathan and Giovani dos Santos kill the 2018 season before it even starts?

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter get you caught up on all the Galaxy news you needed in this never-ending offseason — only 70 days left until the Galaxy open pre-season training.

They’ll discuss the injury to Giovani dos Santos to start things off. Should this concern Galaxy fans for 2018? Or is this just another reason why putting your faith in Gio is a dangerous proposition?

In addition, ¬†they’ll guys will also discuss why more Targeted Allocation Money (TAM) could be on the way and what that might mean for a league that could define what it means to be an MLS franchise. Could the additional money make the league competitive on the international stage? Or will it mean a widening gap between teams that want to spend and teams that don’t?

But the main topic of discussion will be about the what it would mean to the Galaxy if the dos Santos brothers were to take their game to Liga MX. Could any of it be considered good news? What hurts the Galaxy the least? And what would basically see the Galaxy forfeit the beginning of the season?

It’s a great discussion about the dangers of giving one family two-thirds of the Designated Players on a team and why the Galaxy might best be served by ending the experiment.

Plus, Josh and Kevin really want to answer all of your amazing questions.

It’s a 90-minute show that’s jam-packed with Galaxy content and discussion. Thanks for joining us!
