As the Revs’ roster continues to take shape before training camp opens on Saturday, we have a few more pieces of roster information for our newest players.

The team’s four news players have selected their jersey numbers, while one familiar face has changed his number.

First, Charlie Davies will not be wearing No. 99 this season. Instead, he’s cutting his number in half – he’ll go with just No. 9 in 2014.

As for two MLS veterans who have joined the team, Paolo DelPiccolo will wear No. 3, while Brad Knighton – who wore No. 24 in his first go-round with the Revs – will don #18 this time.

The team’s top two draft picks have also selected their numbers. Steve Neumann will be No. 4, while Patrick Mullins will wear No. 7.

Will anyone be personalizing their new 2014 jerseys with any of these numbers?

The Revolution and Lee Nguyen came up big on Saturday night, with Nguyen scoring the go-ahead goal on a PK against D.C. United 'keeper Bill Hamid. Nguyen was stopped by Hamid on a previous PK attempt in the 57th minute, so as you can imagine, Lee was stoked to get a second chance

So while the Revs walked away with three points, the Nguyen-Hamid PK battle ended in a draw: one save, one goal. The two exchanged tweets following the match, and the exchange was nothing but mutual admiration:

Not sure about you, but this kind of thing is what I enjoy most about sports on social media.

The MLS 24 Under 24 list has been fully revealed over at MLSSoccer.com. Despite having three(!) players in the top 10 (Andrew Farrell #9, Juan Agudelo #6, Diego Fagundez #5), Revs fans do have a legitimate gripe when it comes to second-year midfielder Kelyn Rowe - who did not make the list at all - let alone finish in the top 10. Jeff Lemieux (as always) puts things into perspective:

I think we can all agree that list or no list, this team's future is very, very bright.

MLSSoccer.com's "Armchair Analyst" Matt Doyle also thinks Rowe should have made the list:

Why he’s on my list: Same reason he’d be on everyone’s list if the votes were tallied now: he’s arguably been the league’s second-best attacking midfielder since the end of July. Once Jay Heaps moved Rowe central, he became a force.

Read Matt's full piece here.

So congrats to Andrew, Diego and Juan for making the list and just think - Kelyn Rowe has two more years of eligibility for this list. He'll be there next year.

Kelyn Rowe is turning heads across the league with his recent hot streak. From this week's Weeky Update:

"Since August 17, the second-year midfielder has scored five goals and added one assist, and has recorded at least one point in each game … the five-game point streak is tied for fourth longest in MLS this season … on the season, Rowe has seven goals and seven assists in 27 appearances."

Congrats, Kelyn, on being named to the MLS Team of the Week for week 29!

John was in attendance at the event, and was even able to take the ceremonial first swing to start off the day. Check out photos and a video recap below.
