Toja > Beckham! Toja > Angel! Toja > Schelletto!

Major League Soccer Talk has a great point in their blog today. As much as we talk about the impact players like David Beckham will have on the MLS, the league still needs to continue to sign played like Juan Toja. If you haven't already seen it, make a point to watch the DCU-FC Dallas game. You'll see Toja's talent on display as Morrow's Hoops claw back from a 3-0 deficit to tie things up at RFK.

The MLS doesn't need players like him just because for his $100,000 salary he's arguably been the best player in the league. They also need talent like Toja because there is a good chance they can be selling him for a pretty sum in a few years. Major League Soccer has been and for quite some time will continue to be a selling league. And, as MLS Talk, they also help enhance the view of the league overseas. You have to wonder if the league had a few more Toja's and few less Kirovski's if teams would've been able to bring in some of those marquee players that got away like Borgetti, Figo or even Zidane.
