Anyone up for a Crew-Dynamo MLS Cup? That only seems fair right now, the way the season is playing out. Of course, it probably won't happen. But those are the top two teams in the rankings and really, if they aren't 1-2 in your rankings, you must use some skewed formula that doesn't reward teams for success.
1. Columbus (16-6-5). With a plus-15, only club with a goal differential of plus-10 or more.
2. Houston (11-5-10). Five losses a league low.
3. Chicago (12-9-6). Fire have been maddeningly inconsistent recently - five wins, five losses and a draw in last 11.
4. New England (12-8-7). Somehow managed to come-from-behind and draw... which I suppose is some sort of positive.
5. Chivas USA (11-10-6). Five wins in last six - and four of them have been against Eastern teams.
6. Real Salt Lake (9-10-8). Road point at this stage of season is fine but a win could have been massive.
7. FC Dallas (8-9-10). Playoff spot is theirs to lose.
8. Colorado (10-13-4). Picked a bad time to get blown out.
9. San Jose (7-10-9). Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.
10. Kansas City (8-10-9). Will regret not having picked up full three points at home.
11. Toronto (8-12-7). Chad Barrett finally showing some signs of becoming a valuable forward.
12. DC United (10-14-3). What a miserable season DC has had.
13. New York (9-10-8). With playoff races heating up, Red Bulls lose two home games by a combined 8-5. Defense? Ha.
14. LA Galaxy (7-12-8). Galaxy competing with Kings for worst professional sports team in LA... and what do they have in common again? That's right, AEG.
