Podcast: Hypothetical Gio, Galaxy award season, and a healthy Alessandrini

The LA Galaxy might have been able to use a healthy Giovani dos Santos, but would they have been better off? And are the Galaxy walking into a firestorm when they face Minnesota at home?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy may have got some good news regarding a fan-favorite player, but they still have a mountain to climb if they want to beat a very stingy Minnesota United on October 20.

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Larry Morgan discuss the Galaxy’s latest news while also talking about some of the more exciting stories from the last week.

The guys will start by revealing their End-of-Season team ballots. Most years, the Galaxy ask media members to vote on Player of the Year and Defender of the Year for the current Galaxy season. And while there’s little argument over who is the Player of the Year is, there might be some discussion about Defender of the Year. And both Josh and Larry are here to tell you that there shouldn’t be any discussion. There are CLEAR winners for both.

Then they’ll talk about a hypothetical situation that puts Giovani dos Santos back on this team for 2019. Could the Galaxy have thrived with the Mexican International on the field this year?

Next, Josh and Larry discuss the injury updates on Romain Alessandrini and Joe Corona. This is where Josh argues that one of these injuries and players is WAY more important than the other. Who is the key to the Galaxy’s success or failure against Minnesota?

Finally, Larry drops his wealth of knowledge about the Galaxy’s last road playoff win, and together, they’ll discuss who has the most Galaxy playoff experience. Can you name a current member of the roster that has more playoff appearances than anyone else on the team? And will that help or hurt the Galaxy?

We’ve got packed show for an off-week, and we love that you’re joining us for this critical buildup to the big game next week!
