Your New York Red Bulls

For once, a line-up where Mehdi Ballouchy comes on in the 80th minute and he might actually be your best option.

Earlier today, the Red Bulls released the list of players at "Day One" of training camp at Montclair State University and the list is unimpressive to say the least. Case in point, the starting line-up, should the season start right-freaking-now:

Ryan Meara; Roy Miller, Sacir Hot, Stephen Keel, Jan Gunnar Solli; Dane Richards, Teemu Taino, Rafael Marquez, Dax McCarty, Joel Lindpere; Corey Hertzog

You can take issue with my tactics (yep, I went with a 4-5-1 with Hertzog alone up top) but you'll be hard-pressed to put together a better line-up.

Obviously, not everyone is here. Theirry Henry is with Arsenal (with a calf injury, by the way), Juan Agudelo is with the USMNT, Frank Rost is still contemplating his future and there are a whole lot of rumors that new players are coming into the fold.

Take from this what you will.
