             === United's Najar suspended for conference finals ===
 
 New York, NY (Sports  Network) - D.C. United defender Andy Najar was suspended
 two additional  matches by MLS on  Friday, meaning the 2010 Rookie of the Year
 will miss both legs of the Eastern Conference finals.
 
 Najar was sent off late in the first leg of the Eastern semifinals against Red
 Bull New York, and served an automatic one-game suspension in the second match
 Thursday night.
 
 United defeated New York, 1-0, to win the series on aggregate, 2-1. Najar will
 now miss the next two playoff matches against the Houston Dynamo, but could be
 back for the MLS Cup on Dec. 1.
 
 The  MLS Players Union appealed the suspension for Najar, but MLS Commissioner
 Don Garber upheld the ban.
 
 FC  Dallas' Blas Perez was also suspended two matches for "violent conduct" in
 a  match against Chivas USA and will be out for the first two fixtures of next
 year.
 
 The New England Revolution's Fernando Cardenas  was also fined by MLS for "his
 act of embellishment" in the regular-season final against the Montreal Impact.
