Goodbye Michael Barrios, Thanks for the Memories

It's happened, after six years with FC Dallas, long time starter and fan favorite, Michael Barrios is no longer a player with Dallas. Today he was traded to the Colorado Rapids for an international roster spot and the Rapid's 15th pick in the Superdraft. The Rapids are also to get Dallas' 21st pick in the draft.

FC Dallas originally acquired Barrios on a free transfer in February of 2015. In his first year, he played in thirty games, with twenty-three starts, including playoff games. He registered seven goals and two assists. He helped Dallas become the Supporter's Shield runner ups and get to the semi-finals of the playoffs.

In the following year, he was a key part of Dallas' explosive offense that helped them to win a double for the first time in franchise history. They won the Supporter's Shield and the US Open Cup, ending a trophy drought that Dallas had been in since their first Open Cup trophy in 1997.

During his six years with the club, Barrios was known for his speed on the flanks and for being a warrior on the pitch. He played in a total of 211 games with the club in all competitions, scoring 37 goals and registering 48 assists, per FC Dallas' own website.
