Toronto FC lands Carlos Ruiz from LA

Soccer By Ives reports. This will clear the way for L.A. to sign veteran Eddie Lewis.

So, who makes out better on this deal?

For my money Toronto. Ruiz has struggled in an L.A. line up where Landon Donovan, Edson Buddle and suprise surprise, Alan Gordon are getting it done at the top of the formation. But he is still a quality striker and Toronto now boasts Ruiz and Danny Dichio at the prime and younger player Chad Barrett and teenage sensation Adbus Ibrahim. Now, if Toronto can get service to these strikers, they can recover for the season.

While Eddie Lewis is a steady and strong player, he really only has one or two years left so I am not sure what he gets L.A. aside from another midfielder.
