Logan Pause To Retire At End of Season

Logan Pause, long-term midfielder and captain of the Chicago Fire, announced Friday his retirement at the end of the 2014 season.

The Fire dealt Duka to the Impact in exchange for Sanna Nyassi.  The Gambian midfielder had been with the Impact since the expansion ...
