Laser Blast Rankings (May 2)

Here are the latest rankings. The separation the top three had is still there but with more losses, even if they came on the road, it won't be for much longer.

1. Real Salt Lake - Had to figure the team was due for a letdown even though Portland is a tough place to play.

2. New York - Took the throttle off after one goal, but it was more than enough to silence KC.

3. LA Galaxy - Wonder if they'll chalk this loss up to bad weather?

4. Philadelphia - Overcame an early red card to win; takes a strong team to do that.

5. Seattle - No Zakuani, no White, no Rosales and they still get three goals.

6. Columbus - Two goals? In one game? Crew won't lost many times when that happens.

7. Houston - Will Bruin is finishing off goals that Brian Ching may not have.

8. FC Dallas - Survived the rain and lightning and got three well-earned points.

9. Portland - Stunning defeat against a team that hadn't lost an MLS game in a while.

10. Chivas USA - Thorough whipping of New England but real tests come soon - at RSL, at NY, vs LA.

11. Colorado - Casey is missed, badly, strange considering how well Folan, Amarikwa, Cummings looked; depth just isn't there.

12. Chicago - A gritty result, could have left Dick's with three points.

13. Vancouver - Salgado's first MLS goal only positive souvenir from Ohio.

14. New England - A horrible effort against Chivas.

15. San Jose - When you go up a man on the road, you're the team that's supposed to win.

16. DC United - Well, that was fun while it lasted.

17. Sporting KC - The offense was the only thing that's supposed to keep these guys in games, so if they can't score, they have zero chance.

18. Toronto FC - So much for that momentum from the win over Edmonton.
