COG STUDIOS, Calif. — How do you judge a preseason game that didn’t go anywhere near as planned?

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss all the latest LA Galaxy news and what you can look forward to in the coming week.

The guys will discuss the injury to Dani Acosta, and why Rolf Feltscher is in Naples, Italy. Plus, Josh and Kevin are talking about all the rumors surrounding Alan Franco and why, if the Galaxy land Franco, it will be a master class in cap manipulation.

And does the name Kobe Hernandez Foster ring a bell? We’ll tell you why his departure from the Galaxy could be a good thing for the club in the long-term.

But the bulk of the show will be spent dissecting some fo the positives and negatives from the Galaxy’s 2-1 loss to Toronto FC on Saturday.
