Jonathan Bornstein's last practice with Chivas USA was winding down when defender Carlos Borja approached from behind and lifted Bornstein onto the shoulders of teammates Ben Zemanski and Sal Zizzo. After five solid ? sometimes spectacular ? seasons with Chivas, the only professional club Bornstein has ever played with, the team couldn't bear to see its captain walk off the practice field for the final time. So they carried him. Bornstein officially said goodbye to his teammates Saturday, making the last of a franchise-record 123 appearances for Chivas in a 4-1 loss to the Chicago Fire.

Defender James Riley, who led Chivas USA in minutes played last season, apparently won't be adding to that total this summer after being traded to D.C. United on Thursday. A day earlier Riley said he expected Chivas, which had already jettisoned seven players from last year's team, to make him the eighth to go and Thursday morning he confirmed that, tweeting from a plane that he was heading to D.C. United. "Although, I will miss SoCal incredibly, I am excited for the next chapter," he wrote.

Chivas USA continued its busy off-season dealing Wednesday when it sent midfielder Ben Zemanski to the Portland Timbers in exchange for allocation money and the right of first refusal for former Chivas USA defender Jonathan Bornstein. Bornstein is currently with Tigres-UANL of the Mexican league. Zemanski, drafted by Chivas out of the University of Akron in 2010, played in 22 games last season, starting 18 of those. The 24-year-old did not score a goal and had only two assists.

When Chivas USA lost both of its captains in a matter of weeks, the players could have panicked. Instead, after watching defender Jonathan Bornstein depart for the World Cup and midfielder Sacha Kljestan sign with Anderlecht in Belgium, other leaders stepped up. "We were worried a little bit because they were our leaders, but we have experienced players," said defender Mariano Trujillo, who assumed the captain's role for Chivas' June 12...

Tired of the almost daily soap opera that is David Beckham? Weary, already, of the prospect of another Beckham-dominated Galaxy season? Want a complete change of scenery and direction? Well, the choice is there this year. It arrived back in Southern California last week in the shape of Robin Fraser and Greg Vanney, who were named coach and assistant coach, respectively, of Chivas USA. At first glance, it would appear to be a poor move by the two former Galaxy defenders.

If there is one thing that Chivas USA has learned in 2010, it is that the team needs to be better in 2011. Year-end awards, in other words, will be thin on the ground when the Major League Soccer regular season comes to a close in two weeks. Having failed to reach the playoffs for the first time in five years and having won only eight games, including Saturday night's 3-0 victory over Toronto FC in Carson, Chivas USA requires a substantial makeover. Part of that will come about naturally, with the departure, for instance, of U.S. national team defender Jonathan Bornstein, who is joining the UANL Tigres in Mexico, and the likely retirement of a player or two. The team features a trio of 30-somethings in all-star goalkeeper Zach Thornton, 36, and defenders Ante Jazic, 34, and Alex Zotinca, 33. Any or all of them might decide to call it a career.

Chivas USA was put out of its misery Sunday evening when it was beaten, 2-1, by the Galaxy to officially end the club's hopes of reaching Major League Soccer's playoffs. Does that mean Coach Martin Vasquez will lose his job? "I think it's a fair question, but I think it's too soon," Vasquez said. "Right now I'm still the head coach and tomorrow, if there's no other thing, then I'm going to continue to be the head coach. " The loss dropped Chivas to 7-15-4 with four games remaining in the regular season, and Vasquez, in his first year at the helm, said they would all be taken seriously.

Somewhere along the line, Major League Soccer will have expanded into all the cities it wants to inhabit, built all the stadiums it wants to build, and signed all the designated players it wants to sign. Perhaps then the league will give some serious attention to the upper-echelon American players in its fold, players such as Jonathan Bornstein. If ever there was a case of MLS succeeding on one front while simultaneously failing on another, Bornstein is that example. In only a few weeks, the 25-year-old Chivas USA defender's MLS career will come to an end. After five seasons in the league, Bornstein is packing his bags and moving to Monterrey, Mexico.

CHIVAS USA TONIGHT VS. NEW ENGLAND When: 7:30. Where: Home Depot Center. On the air: TV: KDOC, KWHY; Radio: 690. Records: Chivas USA 6-12-4, Revolution 7-12-3. Record vs. Revolution: 1-0-0. Update: The playoff hopes grow ever dimmer for both teams, and Friday night's loser can probably start making alternate plans for November. New England rode the coaching talent of Steve Nicol for several years, but owner Robert Kraft's penny-pinching has finally caught up with the Revolution, which has no players of any real quality apart from midfielder Shalrie Joseph.
