Is Nate Jaqua in the doghouse?

Seems that way. Not likely for his attitude but for his inconsistent play, perhaps? It’s a question that will be asked after the game. Nate didn’t start the U.S. Open Cup game, came out after 77 minutes vs. DC United last week, and is not in the starting lineup today.
Also, Brad Evans will start his second straight game on the bench.
Here are the lineups:
SEATTLE:
Keller
Riley, Hurtado, Marshall, Gonzalez
Le Toux, Alonso, Vagenas, Zakuani
Ljungberg, Montero
CHIVAS USA
GK Zach Thornton
Ds Marcelo Saragosa, Jonathan Bornstein, Yamith Cuesta, Ante Jazic
MIDs Jesus Padilla, Michael Lahoud, Paulo Nagamura (capt.), Sacha Kljestan
FWDs Justin Braun, Maicon Santos
A banner in the Brougham End reads “35 years of Passion,” in reference to the NASL Sounders and soccer in this town. Sigi Schmid just walked on the field to the tune of “Paid the Cost to Be the Boss,” by the Godfather of Soul, James Brown.
I met some friends at FX McCrory’s this a.m. and took video of the march to the match. It is coming up…
For now here is a link to my advance for today’s game.
