1. (3) Seattle Sounders FC 6-1-1
Leaps to the top with four wins in a row. They say the best is yet to come.
2. (2) San Jose Earthquakes 7-2-1
Over the past 34 games, Wondolowski has scored 25 goals. Incredible.
3. (4) Real Salt Lake 7-3-1
Rimando (shoulder) should be ready for a big game in Seattle on Sat.
4. (1) Sporting Kansas City 7-2-0
Yikes. No one would have predicted a shutout home loss to Montreal.
5. (6) Vancouver Whitecaps FC 5-2-2
The wait is over. Hassli scored a late winner vs. S.J., his first MLS goal in 17 games.
6. (5) D.C. United 5-3-3
Keeps things exciting with 20 goals scored and 15 allowed, both second-most in MLS.
7. (8) New York Red Bulls 5-3-1
Rafa Marquez has served his three-game suspension. Will he be able to fit right back in?
8. (7) Houston Dynamo 2-2-2
At long last, BBVA Compass Stadium opens Saturday in a nationally-televised game vs. D.C.
9. (12) Chicago 3-2-2
Can make a statement this week with home games against Real Salt Lake and Sporting K.C.
10. (11) Colorado Rapids 5-5-0
Balanced attack has three players (Hill, Cummings, Castrillon) with at least three goals.
11. (10) FC Dallas 3-4-3
Winless in four and face red-hot Seattle on Wed. hampered with suspensions and injuries.
12. (15) Montreal Impact 3-5-2
Who would’ve guessed the expansion side would have more points than L.A. at this stage?
13. (9) Los Angeles Galaxy 3-5-1
Worry is growing after two straight losses. Fourteen goals allowed is tied for worst in the West.
14. (14) Columbus Crew 2-4-2
No wins in five, but will host a World Cup qualifier later this year. That’s exciting, at least.
15. (13) Chivas USA 3-6-0
GK Dan Kennedy called a last-second loss to Chicago “heartbreaking.” Now 0-5 at home.
16. (16) Portland Timbers FC 2-5-2
Success of its Cascadia rivals has to make a disappointing start even worse.
17. (18) New England Revolution 3-6-0
Saer Sene has three goals, but needs help. The rest of the team has just five in nine games.
18. (17) Philadelphia Union 2-5-1
Could they be courting Spanish forward Raul? A woeful offense certainly could use him.
19. (19) Toronto FC 0-8-0
Gets a bye week to stew on its porous record, the worst start to a season in league history.
