WASHINGTON ? When D.C. United welcome the Columbus Crew in their respective season openers on Saturday night at RFK Stadium, both teams will be looking for fresh starts after they underwent similar makeovers during the offseason.
The Crew arrive in the nation?s capital boasting a host new faces. Veterans like Guillermo Barros Schelotto, Frankie Hejduk and Gino Padula, key figures in the club's 2008 MLS Cup run, are no longer on the team. A number of new draft picks and other additions like Sebastian Miranda are preparing to make their league debuts.
