A working class hero is something to be. Once again, the MLSPU has released the player's salaries. Who's been TFC's best value player this year? You decide! with a poll!

Can Osorio leave Caldwell in the dust again?

It's been barely a month since the last time the figures were released, and there's not a whole lot of new info as far as Toronto FC are concerned. Over at Portland, Max Urruti's salary comes in at $200,000.04, which certainly looks like a Laba-esque young DP contract that Kevin Payne (presumably with Leiweke and indirectly Bezbatchenko as the MLS guy's blessing) gave him.

You can see the numbers for the whole league here, and below (with an apology for my lack of formatting skills)is a list for the TFC players, with all the usual caveats that these numbers shouldn't be taken as definite by any means given all the weird MLS accounting that can happen.The first number is the base salary, the second number the guaranteed compensation (with things like signing bonuses spread out over the length of the contract added on.)

As is traditional here now, you all get to vote, back in August we went mean, who was the biggest waste of money, this time we'll play nice and determine who's best value and most deserving of a raise for TFC this year, and I think there are 4 genuine options here. So, scroll to the bottom and cast your vote.
