Greetings from the big show. It may be of diminishing importance for the league, but the Major League Soccer SuperDraft still carries a sense of occasion and spectacle.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Greetings from the big show. It may be of diminishing importance for the league, but the Major League Soccer SuperDraft still carries a sense of occasion and spectacle.

It also doesn't hurt that MLS gets two hours of TV time on ESPN2 in the middle of January.

What matters most today, though, is the players who will end up on the Union roster. Philadelphia has three picks from the two-round draft: the 13th pick in the first round and the 13th and 16th picks in the second round.
