Poll: How confident are you going into the 2013 MLS season?

Once again, it’s game week. Essentially, preseason is over.

Here’s a quick look at what has happened:

AdditionsShalrie Joseph, Djimi Traore, Lamar Neagle, DeAndre Yedlin, Eriq Zavaleta, Dylan Remick

SubtractionsFredy Montero, Jeff Parke, Andrew Weber, Bryan Meredith, Mike Seamon, Cordell Cato, Daniel Steres, Michael Tetteh

Possible subtractionChristian Tiffert (expected to be bought out by March 2 deadline)

*     *     *

Some may think that looks one-sided toward the outgoing direction, but remember guys like Mario Martinez and Steve Zakuani will be key players after limited roles last year.

Others will notice the forward position hasn’t been addressed yet.

For an outside perspective, Soccer By Ives has the Sounders as high as No. 2 in his preseason MLS power rankings.

So what do you think? How confident are you this team will be able to meet expectations this year?
