The Equalizer Podcast, Episode 14.1: Chicago’s Rory Dames helps us break down a blockbuster

Last night, we talked about it. At least, Richard Farley and Claire Watkins did. It was the trade that was looming above three NWSL teams, threatening to not only redefine their seasons but change the entire competitive landscape of the 2018 campaign.

Welcome to the aftermath.

On this episode of the Equalizer Podcast, Dan Lauletta and John D. Halloran break down the now-completed blockbuster trade from all angles: How Houston will use Sofia Huerta and Taylor Comeau; how much Utah improves with the additions of Christen Press and Samantha Johnson; and what Chicago will look like with Brooke Elby and (checks three times) six? draft picks added to the coffers.

Before that, though Red Stars head coach Rory Dames joins Farley for an extended look at Chicago’s side of the deal, reviewing the decision to trade Huerta, the process of re-trading Press, and his remade team’s outlook over the second half of the season.
