I think we should replace Beasley with Johnson, move LD to the left, start Bedoya on the right, and put AJ in up top. Start Mix over Beckerman.
Exactly what I said, except for the Mix over Beckerman part. That's a recipe for disaster IMO, as I don't think you could rely on either one to stay home in front of the defense. Jones would have to be THE defensive mid, and this game's too important to be relying on Jones to not try to do too much.
Jones will be eager to prove he's better than he showed against CR (which he is), and in Bradley's absence, he's the one I trust most to supply offense from that position while not being overwhelmed by Mexico on a big stage. Beckerman can be relied on to be Beckerman, which we need right now IMO..
