Happy Labor Day Rapids fans! This week on Holding The High Line, we recap a one point double game week for the Pids. Mark gives us the second half of his DA player updates. We've got a great Ask HTHL on player acquisition. Rabbi tries to make sense of the 4-1 loss as Nashville. Red looks for positives from the draw to D.C. United and why it's too late for moral victories. We propose a new fancy state, Expected Penalty Kicks (xPKs). Then we look ahead to Saturday's must win game against Vancouver.
