Did any of TFC's roster decisions this week surprise you? Could they not have found a way to keep Víctor Vázquez?

In case you missed it, Toronto FC announced its annual end-of-season roster decisions on Thursday. 

TFC declined their contract options on goalkeepers Greg Ranjitsingh and Tomás Romero, defender Themi Antonoglou, midfielder Víctor Vázquez and forward C.J. Sapong. At the same time, TFC exercised its contract options on goalkeeper Luka Gavran and midfielder Alonso Coello. 

There are no surprises here, with the possible exception of the club not bringing back Antonoglou, once considered a promising youth academy prospect.
