Chris Albright was traded to New York Red Bulls for draft picks. It's a pretty good trade, since the Revolution are basically dumping salary. Albright made $176,000 last season. He's been injury prone the last couple of years and hasn't really contributed much to the team. While he was hurt last year, Alston really stepped up. So the Revs have a replacement for Albright in Alston, and also shed quite a bit of salary at the same time, giving the Revs flexibility to fill other needs. All in all, a good trade.
