Jamison Olave is the key to the RSL defense. He was out when RSL lost 4 out of 5
due to the injury from the All-Star game. His first game back Real wins on the
road with Borchers out for more than half the game. In my opinion there is no
better central defender in MLS and his ability to run down attackers is simply
amazing. Borchers brings the stability and leadership to the back line, but it
is Olave that makes the big plays that prevent a goal. If RSL can
get healthy in time for the playoffs they will have a very good chance to win
the MLS Cup this year.
