Red Bull March Out Like a Lamb

The Red Bull preseason record went flatter than ginger ale left out on the sun porch this week, with losses to Toronto FC and defending MLS Champion Houston Dynamo in South Carolina providing more than a bit of anxiety as the season opener beckons on Saturday in Columbus.

Local starlet Alecko Eskandarian and former Red Bull Edson Buddle did the honors for Toronto in a 2-1 victory on Wednesday, while a Brian Ching header (what else?) coupled with an Alejandro Moreno winner gave Houston an identical 2-1 scoreline over the Red Bull on Saturday night. Dave van den Bergh opened the scoring against Houston and John Wolyniec found the net against Toronto, as the Red Bull finished the games that don't count with a mediocre 5-3-4 record after a promising start in Florida.
