Reserve League game at 7 p.m. tonight and other notes

Seattle Sounders FC Logo.jpgSounders FC will play its final MLS Reserve League home game tonight at 7 p.m. against the San Jose Earthquakes at Starfire Stadium in Tukwila. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted. I’ll have updates from the action then.

Seattle is 7-1 in the Reserve League and has already clinched the West Division title with two games remaining.

Coach Sigi Schmid said it’ll be a good chance to get guys like Michael Tetteh, David Estrada and Roger Levesque 90 minutes of game action.

Some other notes:

— The voice of the Sounders, Arlo White, will be facilitating a talk with Schmid and author Simon Kuper (Soccernomics, Soccer Men) on Tuesday. The event runs from 7:30-9 p.m. at downstairs at Town Hall (enter on Seneca Street). Admission is $5 and can be purchased at Brown Paper Tickets, by calling 800-838-3006 or at the door beginning at 6:30.

— DP midfielder Alvaro Fernandez has jumped to the top of the Castol Index, a system that supposedly rates the value of MLS players. The system also ranks Sporting KC’s Chance Myers as the third best player in the league. Not to mention, Mauro Rosales is at No. 74 and Kasey Keller is No. 156, so keep that in mind.

— The guys at Sounder at Heart are hosting an event prior to the San Jose game on Saturday. Details available on its Facebook event page.

— Lastly, here’s another ticket update for the regular-season home finale from Mr. White.
