MLS West gets tougher still with news out of LA

My story in today's News Tribune begins with the idea that the MLS Western Conference has gotten even tougher this off season.

And now things have gotten tougher still with today's announcment out of LA that the Galaxy has reached agreements to return Brazilians Juninho and Leonardo to the club for 2012.

Sounders coach Sigi Schmid's reaction?"L.A. seems to figure out how to sign everybody, but we can't somehow be able to do that -- there are foreign limitations and there's who you have open the line and salary cap issues and things like that."
