ON THE MOVE: Eddie Gaven swapped for Edson Buddle

Midfielder Eddie Gaven, 19, has been traded from the New York Red Bulls to the Columbus Crew in exchange for 24-year-old forward Edson Buddle.

Gaven, who debuted in MLS at age 16, has played in 69 games (62 starts), and tallied 16 goals and 12 assists in three seasons. Gaven played for Crew coach Sigi Schmid at last year's U-20 World Youth Championship.

Buddle appeared in 106 games for Columbus and notched 42 goals during his four seasons.

The New York Red Bulls also traded Canadian defender Adrian Serioux, an offseason signing hailed by club president Alexi Lalas as ''just what the doctor ordered,'' to Houston for Danny O'Rourke, the 2004 MAC Hermann Trophy winner out of Indiana University.
