Waiting on a new baby, RSL's Fabian Espindola is questionable vs. Revs

Forward Fabian Espindola will be a "game-time decision" for RSL against the New England Revolution at Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday night, after missing practice on Friday to be with his wife as she prepares to deliver the couple's first child.

It's a boy, and Espindola has been excited about his arrival for months. Remember when he stuffed the ball under his shirt, as if he was pregnant, to celebrate his goal against New York in March?

Espindola said earlier that the couple will name the boy Jayko.

But coach Jason Kreis isn't sure whether Jayko will arrive in time for his father — Espindola is tied with midfielder Kyle Beckerman for the team scoring lead, with three goals — to be fully ready to play against the Revs.

"We just really don't know right now," he said after practice on Friday. "We'll talk to him, and see how he feels. What's important is what happens tonight, when the baby's born, what's the rest like. Those kind of things. It will be a game-time decision."
