Luz Baja ratings

Mexico ratings after week 3:

1. Pachuca (3-0-0). Probably the best team in the Americas right now.
2. Santos (3-0-0). A Matias Vuoso sighting; Santos will be downright scary if he can regain his form.
3. San Luis (2-0-1). Destroyed Cruz Azul at home; newcomers Tressor and Alfredo Moreno (no relation) already making huge impacts.
4. America (1-0-2). Disappointing result (1-1 at Pumas) but a valuable road point nonetheless.
5. Atlante (2-0-1). Soccer secondary in Cancun as area braces for Hurricane Dean.
6. Necaxa (2-1-0). Rayos' defense could use improving but club is gaining results.
7. Toluca (1-1-1). Diablos Rojos welcome old boss Americo Gallego with 1-0 win over Tigres.
8. Morelia (1-1-1). Shutout over Chivas nice way to break duck.

And in case you missed them, the results...

Atlante 3, Tecos 0
San Luis 3, Cruz Azul 1
Jaguares 0, Monterrey 0
Toluca 1, Tigres 0
Pachuca 1, Atlas 0
Pumas 1, America 1
Necaxa 2, Puebla 1
Santos 2, Veracruz 0
Morelia 1, Chivas 0

-Eeeee, I'm gonna go watch Pachuca (v. Galaxy) the 29th! So stoked, yet so bummed ... Chitiva won't play.

-Is it wrong that I really, really wanted Pekerman to beat Gallego? I kinda cried when, why, and how he left the Albiceleste. It's ridiculous, Gallego had nothing to do with it ... my provincial mind just sees they're both from Argentina so one must fall. (And, WOW, is Gallego falling. I feel bad for him now.)

-Atlante! Who'da thunk it?

-Chivas, lololololololol. Srsly, can't stop laughing. lol
