Podcast (January 31, 2019) – Hello Rapids Fans! This week on Holding The High Line, we actually have a bunch of newsworthy stuff to talk about. We discuss the Colorado Rapids rumored rejection of a transfer offer for Kellyn Acosta. Red then spend way too much time talking about the English Championship. The guys give their takes on the dead Maynor Figeroa and Kofe Opare rumors. Rabbi talks Academy kids and trialists in preseason training. Then we’ve got an Ask HTHL that proves to you that Acosta is worth way more than $3 million.
Holding The High Line: Pricing Kellyn Acosta
We finish up the pod with a sit down with forward Andre Shinyashiki. He and Mark talk about his time in college, his approach to his rookie season, and how the heck his last name should be pronounced.

Matt Pollard is the Managing Editor of Last Word on Soccer and an engineer by day. A Colorado Convert, he started covering the Colorado Rapids as a credentialed member of the press in 2016, though he’s watched MLS since ’96. When he’s not watching or writing about soccer, he’s being an outdoorsman (mostly skiing and hiking) in this beautiful state or trying a new beer. For some reason, he thought that starting a podcast with Mark was a good idea and he can’t figure out how to stop this madness. He also hosts Last Word SC Radio.
Mark Goodman, the artist formally known as Rapids Rabbi, moved to Colorado in 2011. Shortly thereafter he went to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, saw Lee Nguyen dribble a ball with the silky smoothness of liquid chocolate cascading into a Bar Mitzvah fountain, and promptly fell head over heels in love with domestic soccer. When not watching MLS or coaching his son’s U-8 team, he’s generally studying either Talmud or medieval biblical exegesis. Which explains why he watches so much MLS, probably. He covers the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the USL for Pittsburgh Soccer Now. He also writes for American Soccer Analysis.
