Et cetera United gets Eddie Johnson in deal with Sounders D.C. United has acquired U.S. national team forward Eddie Johnson from the Seattle Sounders, a blockbuster move by a Major League Soccer club starved for a proven scorer after the worst season in club history. Seattle received allocation funds, which can be applied toward roster moves. Per MLS policy, the amount was not disclosed. Johnson, 29, led the Sounders in goals each of the past two seasons, posting 23 overall in 49 league appearances.

Et cetera Nationals claim former Oriole Florimon on waivers The Washington Nationals claimed former Orioles infielder Pedro Florimon on waivers from the Minnesota Twins. The Nationals designated outfielder Eury Perez for assignment. Florimon, 27, was the Twins' Opening Day shortstop but struggled this season and wasn't a September call-up in Minnesota. He hit .092 (7-for-76) with a .310 OPS, 22 strikeouts and eight walks in 33 games this season. He spent most of the season at Triple-A Rochester, playing mostly shortstop but with some second and third base.

The U.S. men's national soccer team's first appearance in Baltimore since 1997 took a couple of interesting twists this week leading up to Sunday's CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinal against El Salvador at M&T Bank Stadium. The first came Wednesday when U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann was the only one of the managers in this grouping to fully exercise an option to make as many as four personnel changes. While that didn't come as a total surprise considering Klinsmann's willingness to work his roster around the needs of the players' club season, what seems a bit stunning is that Sunday's games will be played before a sellout crowd in excess of 71,000.
