Schmid explains starting Rose, sitting Neagle; doesn't know if that holds for Columbus

"We wanted to come with Andy Rose a little bit because we think he’s been paying well and we know he can play wide right there," Schmid said. "Lamar had a very good game in Colorado, he had a good game in LA, but he has not always been at his best this season. We felt, ‘OK, we’ll start Pappa and bring Lamar off the bench for this one.’ It could change going into the next game: I don’t know. But I think

we have a number of quality players there who can play and we’re going to sometimes make choices based upon our players’ form, or based upon the opponent and what we see from them."
