Captain Rakitic

Your new captain.

Your new captain.

The team has named Rakitic the new captain.  I like this pick.  He has really excelled recently and clearly is committed to this team, settling his family here and seems to be in it for the long run.

The alternate captains I feel slightly mixed about: Fazio (great!), Reyes (OK), Fernando Navarro (not pleased).  I had sort of hoped that Medel might be an alternate, maybe it would’ve made him grow up a little and take some more responsibility for his actions.  Perhaps they felt he wasn’t ready.

Regardless, ready for this season to get started!
