Chicago forward Brian McBride today was named MLS player of the month for April.
McBride scored four goals in four games in helping the Fire to a 1-0-3 record.(And yes, he got my vote. No. 2 on my ballot was Casey Conner of Colorado, who had four goals in April, including a hat trick in the Rapids' 3-2 win at LA.)
McBride's selection means that the players of the month for the first two months of this MLS season will share the Toyota Field pitch Saturday as Seattle meets Chicago, because Sounders forward Fredy Montero won the award for March.
