Jeff Lemieux tweeted within the last hour that Steve Ralston‘s dislocated elbow, suffered less than a week after his re-signing with the Revolution, will keep him out of action for about a month.

Ralston played two minutes in New England’s exhibition against Brazilian club Cruzeiro on Sunday. The match drew about 12,000 fans on a day dominated by the Celtics regionally and the World Cup from a soccer-niche perspective, and cost the Revs the only help it could find in the midfield. And they lost 3-0. Worthy investment? Comment with your thoughts.

Joseph, Reis (in the picture), and Twellman (not – hello, double entendre) have combined to play in one match this season.

Where is the New England Revolution’s money tied up?

With its stars, of course.

Credit to poster REV IT UP over at BigSoccer.com‘s Revs’ forum for these numbers:

Between Shalrie Joseph ($450,000 a year), Taylor Twellman ($395,000), and Matt Reis ($173,344), the Revolution have invested $1,018,344 for 2010.

This accounts for 39.94% of the 2010 salary cap ($2.55 million).

This season, between the three, one game has been played.

Revs captain Shalrie Joseph does not expect to play in tonight’s match against Colorado.

From Frank Dell’Apa‘s Boston.com article this morning:

“I don’t think I’m going to be out there, I’m not even close to where I was two weeks ago in terms of health and fitness,’’ Joseph said. “I’m going for treatment and I’m optimistic for next week [against FC Dallas].’’

Look for Pat Phelan to get the start if Joseph cannot go.  The Revs may also opt for a 3-5-2 or 4-5-1 formation in  his absence to clog the middle some.

As Saturday night’s match against the Colorado Rapids approaches for the Revolution, the status of striker Edgaras Jankauskas, who’s yet to make his season debut, has become one of the game’s bigger subplots.  In this video, he and Nico Colaluca, a former Rapid who is also on the mend, talk about how they’re feeling.

A couple quotes of note:

Is Jankauskas ready to go in 2010?

by Adam Vaccaro

Revs striker Edgaras Jankauskas has been participating heavily in training this week.  On Tuesday, he was listed as a full participant, and on Wednesday, the Lithuanian striker assisted on a nifty play in an 8-on-8 scrimmage.

Through only four matches, it’s tough to really gauge the Revs’ offensive attack.  Five of the club’s six goals come from two players, one of whom has seen very little playing time this season (Kenny Mansally, who scored two against DC United in the match’s second half).  Rookie forward Zack Schiwalski is responsible for three more, all recorded within fourteen minutes of the Revs’ 4-1 victory over Toronto FC.  Aside from the small number of scorers, the season’s sample size at large is still far too small to make any claims.

An update to the notes posted moments ago: According to the Revs’ twitter account, Darrius Barnes is indeed getting the start.  He is replacing Emmanuel Osei, who is said to have a left foot contusion.

This will be Barnes’s first start of the season after having had the distinction of playing every minute of every game as a rookie in 2009.  He’ll be manning his familiar center back position, with Cory Gibbs backing him up and Seth Sinovic and Kevin Alston flanking him.

Three Talking Points for the Revs’ Battle at Buck Shaw

1. No SJ in SJ

As reported yesterday, Shalrie Joseph has not made the trip to Northern California, as his hip flexor injury continues to persist. Though his name has yet to appear on the score sheet for New England, his excellence in holding the ball in the second half against TFC allowed Sainey Nyassi and  Chris Tierney to make wide runs and generate chances at goal. Pat Phelen is most like to replace Joseph, though I’d prefer to see Emmanuel Osei make the move to midfield, allowing a healthy Darrius Barnes to replace him at center back.
