Loch Benevian Rankings (July 6).

Yes, a day early, but why wait 'til Monday?

As for the rankings, no movement within the top six, that is no team dropped out of the top six. If I could, I'd rate New England at 1, skip two and go straight to three as no team is close to the Revolution these days.

1. New England (10-4-3). First team to 10 victories wins... what exactly, I'm not sure.
2. Columbus (8-4-3). That come-from-behind fight will come in handy come playoff time.
3. DC United (7-7-1). Too bad United didn't have league game this weekend to take advantage of surge in momentum.
4. Toronto FC (6-5-3). In MLS play, Reds are still kings of the BMO castle.
5. Chicago (6-5-3). For a change, defense lets down offense.
6. LA Galaxy (6-6-3). Went 0-2-1 in three-game stretch against East; Galaxy 1-5-1 against East overall with 11 goals scored and 17 goals allowed. 7. Chivas USA (6-6-3). Took a while but Ante Razov is finally coming into form.
8. Real Salt Lake (5-6-5). Unlucky not to have scored a goal or three against Houston.
9. Houston (4-4-8). Lucky not to have allowed a goal or three against Real Salt Lake.
10. New York (5-5-5). Those reinforcements better be good.
11. Colorado (6-8-1). Der's life in dem Rapids after all.
12. FC Dallas (4-6-6). One goal a game, no matter how dramatic, won't win you much.
13. Kansas City (4-5-5). For a team with a pathetic offense, you'd think at least the defense would make a lead stand.
14. San Jose (3-9-3). Look at this way; San Jose is closer to success than '05 Chivas, '05 RSL and '07 Toronto FC.
