Poll: Do you think the Sounders improved during the transfer window?

What a day for the Sounders.

A DP traded in Alvaro Fernandez. A DP signed in Christian Tiffert. Another player apparently on the way in Mario Martinez. It certainly kept this reporter busy and you, the readers and fans, on the edge of your seats, I’m sure.

One thing GM Adrian Hanauer wanted known is the moves (Tiffert for Fernandez, in particular) weren’t “necessarily a 1-for-1 situation.”

“We’re still busy as we speak,” he said during a Friday evening conference call, clearly in reference to Martinez, who plays for Honduras in the Olympics on Sunday against Spain and is expected to soon join the Sounders.

So what do you think?
