Ralston Done for the Year
Posted by Mike Marshall on September 28, 2009
I had a feeling when he left the field on Saturday night that it would be the last time we saw Steve Ralston this year.
Ralston suffers season-ending knee injury
Revs captain tore the ACL in his right knee on Saturday against Seattle
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Revolution captain Steve Ralston suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee on Saturday, Sept. 26, in the Revs’ match against Seattle, and will miss the remainder of the 2009 season. Surgery to repair the injury will be scheduled for a later date.
I hate to say it, but at 35-years of age, even if Ralston is willing and able to make a comeback, might the Revs be at the point where they should say, “Thanks, but no thanks”? And if he still wants to play, deal him to whatever team he’d like to go to – Kansas City, perhaps?
At this point in his career, I just don’t like the odds of him playing as many minutes as the Revs need him to play. Cut the cord, wish Rally all the best, and move on.
