Ah, Canada rankings

1. Columbus Crew - Sigi Schmid and his team reap rewards of sticking together and developing these past couple of years
2. FC Dallas - No Toja available, but Arturo Alvarez and Co. prove their worth on the road.
3. Kansas City - Top of the table, but Chicago had so many chances to tie, it seems a bit of a fluke
4. New England - The Revs grit out an undermanned draw on the road.
5. Chicago Fire - The basic concept of ball into net eluded Chicago on numerous occasions
6. Colorado Rapids - Rapids get reality check - the rest of the West is better than early results indicated
7. Toronto FC - Team is finally developing to the squad fans deserve - now about that field surface. . .
8. Chivas USA - The good - Kljestan and Mendoza return next game. The bad - Still so many injured.
9. Los Angeles Galaxy - This team is going to suffer when Donovan and Beckham leave for international games.
10. Real Salt Lake - Losing to a team with less MLS seniority always adds salt to the wound.
11. New York - At home, a man up, leading with a beautiful goal by Altidore, give up equalizer.
12. San Jose - It's alive! Quakes 2.0 prove they can score and win.
13. Houston Dynamo - The Dynamo produced a sublime first half of soccer, but at the end of four games, are winless.
14. DC United - The team that won the 2007 regular season made the most changes in personnel - that's looking like a mistake.

No, I'm one of the writers for espn. I send in my rankings and the comments you see in this post to be compiled along with the five other writers that participate in the Power Rankings. The main editor picks out which comments make the espn rankings and averages out all our individual ratings.
