1. Houston (10-5-3). Setting new records in quest to repeat.
2. FC Dallas (9-6-3). To quote a reader's recent comment: Toja! Toja! Toja!
3. Chivas USA (7-5-3). Missing piece to championship puzzle could arrive soon.
4. Kansas City (7-5-4). Recovered from blowing two-goal lead with home shutout win.
5. New England (7-3-5). Revs pull out crucial road victory.
6. D.C. United (7-5-3). Defensive issues resurface... or did they ever leave?
7. New York (7-6-3). Angel goals, results have dried up.
8. Columbus (5-5-7). Loss shouldn't deter Crew; Sigi's team is an Eastern contender.
9. Toronto FC (5-7-4). Maintained shutout despite playing with 10 men for 48 minutes.
10. Los Angeles (3-6-4). No MLS games to worry about until Aug. 5, but club will be league's busiest team nonetheless.
11. Colorado (4-8-5). Hopefully Rapids' poor play at DSG Park doesn't carry over to MLS All-Stars.
12. Chicago (4-8-4). There is light at the end of the tunnel, and his name's Cuauhtemoc.
13. Real Salt Lake (1-8-6). Disturbingly awful side.
