Podcast: Someone should tell the Galaxy they lost a rivalry game. Not sure they know.

Chicharito is ruled out of the All-Star game, but does that mean MLS is going to suspend him from Saturday’s El Trafico? They’re not that stupid, right?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy just got smacked across the mouth in successive home games. They lost back-to-back games for the first time in 2021, and Greg Vanney thinks they’ve got a defensive mentality problem. Is everything falling apart? Should the Galaxy be content to be as good as the 2019 team but no more?

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter want to bring you the latest Galaxy news. And that will mean breaking news about the MLS All-Star Game and who will not be available for El Trafico. 

The guys will start with Kevin on the road to rub elbows with the MLS Players Union. So enjoy the car noise but also get updated on some interesting admissions by MLS today. Will Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez be ruled out for Saturday’s El Trafico? Is MLS bullheaded and stupid? And would they sabotage the league’s biggest rivalry by making sure their biggest stars don’t play?

Josh and Kevin will also comment on MLS’s possible regional TV deal that is anything but regional. Would there be enough money to go around for all the clubs? And are you ready for all Galaxy games to be found in one place without any blackouts?

Then, once Kevin departs, Josh gets into some of the details surrounding the Galaxy’s uninspiring loss to the San Jose Earthquakes on Friday night. What did Greg Vanney have to say after the game? And why do the Galaxy have three weeks to get things right?

What about Kevin Cabral? Do you bench him after a lackluster performance? Do you look at the rotation of Williams as the one big mistake Vanney made? And why is Dan Steres on the Galaxy’s bad list?

We’ve got a ton to talk about in a much longer episode than we anticipated! So thanks for joining us!
