Pedro Santos, Darlington Nagbe OUT

The Crew announced yesterday that both Pedro Santos and Darlington Nagbe are out of the MLS Cup Final tomorrow. The way it is written is confusing. "Medically not cleared to play," is the official statement for the two players, yet it does not specifically tie them to the positive Covid test that was also reported on the same day.

We can assume that the positive test is at least one of the players. Santos, I guess. Nagbe did take a cheap shot by a New England player early last match, so maybe he's hurt? Who knows. 

I'm guessing that the league is purposefully being obtuse in order to make sure the game is played.

Seattle is now favored +130 to the Crew's +220. 

Columbus had the edge before yesterday.
