Sounders hit the pitch for Season II

The Sounders hit the pitch for the start of Season Two this morning at Starfire. The work is closed to the public, but open to the media, so I'll be over there and will pop in on the blog afterward.

News could involve the general state of the team, who shows (or doesn't), a first look at the new guys, and the general sense of optimism/dread with the collective bargaining agreement ticking down to its expiration a week from now.

(You guys also might want to warm up with a few new season comments. We're not expecting mid-season form right away.)

Here's our preview story from today's paper. And here's a look from the Sounders' site at the seven new players expected in camp.
