2010 MLS Power Rankings: Week 4

MLS Power Rankings (04/14) – Last Week’s Rank In Parenthesis

  1. LA Galaxy (2): They still have not ceded a goal, and they are on top of the table.
  2. K.C. Wizards (8): They haven’t been scored on yet either. Vermes is very happy.
  3. N.E. Revolution (7): The most rambunctious Zach since Morris moves NER up.
  4. Columbus Crew (1): A tie on the road shouldn’t drop you this far, but it must CMB.
  5. N.Y. Red Bulls (3): A road loss brings Backe’s boys back down a bit on this list. 
  6. Seattle Sounders (11): Their road tie showed they have grit, and Sigi likes grits.
  7. Colorado Rapids (5): This team seems to always look sick away from the Dick.
  8. Real Salt Lake (6): They could only get one point at Rio Tinto, so they fall two spots.
  9. Houston Dynamo (4): Wow. Kinnear’s bunch balked vs. LA, so they fall far this week. 
  10. Philly Union (15): The Frenchman rang three times in order to give Philly its 1st win. 
  11. S.J. Earthquakes (16): A huge road win for the Quakes shows they have some fight.
  12. Chivas USA (13): Thornton looked like Thor as Chivas finally put points on the board.
  13. FC Dallas (10): Another paltry crowd, and another poor result. They were lucky too. 
  14. Chicago Fire (12): What is going on with the Fire @ Toyota Park? The hex remains!
  15. Toronto FC (9): Preki’s bunch hasn’t just looked poor, they’ve been pathetic.
  16. DC United (14): Their play so far makes one wonder why Onalfo was ever hired.

STO Player of the Week:

Week 3: Zach Schilawski (NER)

Week 2: Kenny Mansally (NER)

Week 1: Javier Morales (RSL)

My MFLS Update:

Week 3 was not kind to The Laws of Lalas, my MFLS squad. Sure, I scored two goals and picked up a couple of assists, but I called the Houston game all wrong and Edson Buddle made me pay for it. I laid a huge goose egg for the week. That’s zero, zip, nil. Many people struggled, but some figured out how to overcome the interesting road wins and emerge with big weeks. Now, I am thinking of playing two TOR guys because they play two like Mr. Banks this week.

It will be boom or bust.

But, before Week 4 rolls around, let’s look at my performance after Week 3:

Out of 2,686 teams, I am currently: 

#1212 in the Fantasy League; and

#418 in the Prediction League.

Here is how I stack up against the savvy managers in my historic division, USA vs. World.

Out of 30 teams, I am currently: 

#24 in the Fantasy League; and

#13 in the Prediction League.

Finally, here is my cup history for 2010:

Elite Cup: Eliminated in First Round.

MFLS Open Cup: Eliminated in First Round.

Geographic Cup: Eliminated in First Round.

International Cup: Starts Week 4.

Please wish my squad luck. We’ll need it.
