MLS – What a league

Further proof that this league is impossible to figure out: FC Dallas stunned the Chicago Fire today 3-0. In Chicago (er, Bridgeview). Worst team in the league beats the only undefeated team in the league easily. So there are no more unbeaten teams left in MLS.

I just counted 66 ties in 168 total regular-season games to date. That’s 39 percent of all matches that have ended in draws.

Houston has surpassed Seattle for second place in the West (18 to 17 points), but the silver lining here is that Sounders FC has the fourth-highest point total in the entire league. So if it can maintain (wins certainly would help), the playoffs are realistic.

Hello? Didn’t even realize the Club America reserves (Mexico) are playing the Portland Timbers down south at PGE Park tonight at 5. I hope that game draws a good crowd. My pal Geoffrey Arnold wrote the preview.
