Six Degrees: Five Favorite Defensive Midfielders

6) There’s not a lot of news in Timberdom this week, so we’ll once again pull out my favorite slow-news-week-gimmick, a list of my five favorite Timbers. So far, we’ve done strikers, wingers, and attacking midfielders. This week, we’ll do defensive midfielders.

We’ll start with a question: should a list of defensive midfielders contain sixes and no one else? Can we throw in some eights? I feel certain there will be some complaints about whether insert-player-here really qualifies as a defensive middie, but I can handle such complaints.
