G: Matt Reis Steve Cronin Ok, he only made one good save, but the way the Galaxy defense has given up goals, a shutout is notable. For Reis, its par.
D: Chris Wingert Ante Jazic - Passing is usually rusty after a long injury layoff, but Jazic was pinpoint

F: Luciano Emilio
Coach: Jason Kreis, Real Salt Lake. Yes, Chivas shot themselves in the foot more often than not in the second half but credit to Kreis for pulling the right strings and holding on for their first road win.
Ruud Gullit, Los Angeles Galaxy. He complained about missing players for international games, but he had the young talent of the squad ready to break down San Jose's stingy defense.
Top player: Luciano Emilio. It's like 2007 all over again - Emilio filling the nets in DC victories.
Edson Buddle - Second hat trick of the year - and none of the goals came directly off a feed from Beckham. Buddle put on a finishing clinic.
Top game: DC 4, New York 1. DC's demolition of New York was grand.
Columbus snapping a losing funk on the road in dominant fashion over KC was impressive.
Top goal: Luis couldn't pick a fave, so here's mine: Clyde Simms from distance with a low hard shot.
Top save: Matt Reis stopped a penalty kick in the second half of New England's 2-0 win at Houston that kept the hosts from scoring.
Major League Soccer for not finding a way to pause or at least slow down the schedule on the same weekend as a U.S. World Cup qualifier.
SJ's offense was pitiful. They need a solid forward in the worst way.
Kansas City and New York both gave little reason to feel that either side is going to contend for a playoff spot.
Chivas USA had their problems finishing, in particular Justin Braun. His breakaway in the second half and subsequent shot straight to RSL keeper Nick Rimando was ghastly.
Chivas USA's attendance on a summer Saturday night - sad.
