My MLS power rankings — Week 3

Here are some other MLS power rankings from ESPN.com, SI.com and MLSsoccer.com.

* * *

Team (prev. rank) Comment
1. L.A. Galaxy (1) Blowing a lead against 10-man Chivas was not expected in Sunday’s SuperClasico
2. Montreal (9) Many have the 3-0 Impact ranked No. 1; opponents have combined for just one win, though
3. Vancouver (4) One of two perfect teams in MLS takes to the road for the first time Sat. at the Dynamo
4. San Jose (3) Just one goal (a PK) in three games? Wondolowski hasn’t looked his dangerous self
5. Houston (2) Brad Davis was a late call-up to the USMNT, meaning he’ll be out versus Whitecaps
6. Sporting K.C. (5) Just 3 of 20 shots against Chicago were on target. Numbers were worse for Fire (1 of 7)
7. Sounders FC (6) Moves have continued into the season with Martins’ signing, Johansson’s expected release
8. D.C. United (7) De-Ro returned, but the offense could manage only five shots last week in New York
9. Real Salt Lake (8) Costa Rican Alvaro Saborio, a recent international call-up, has all three of the team’s goals
10. Philadelphia (12) Bakary Soumare is already asking to be traded, and it looks like he’ll get his wish
11. Columbus (11) Goals scored the past two weeks were followed almost immediately by goals allowed
12. FC Dallas (16) Tied atop the West with two wins, but might’ve benefited from a bad call to beat Houston
13. N.Y. Red Bulls (10) Outshot D.C. by 19. Couldn’t get any of 24 attempts past goalkeeper Bill Hamid, however
14. Chivas USA (15) Controversial red card to Joaquin Velasquez was overturned by an independent review panel
15. New England (13) Team has one goal in three games. Saer Sene can’t return from injury soon enough
16. Toronto FC (14) Play, if not results, has looked better under Ryan Nelsen. L.A. visits next after a bye week
17. Portland (17) What made its fans happier: Getting a point in Seattle or taking two from the Sounders?
18. Colorado (19) Will be without starting goalkeeper Matt Pickens for 3-4 months with a broken arm
19. Chicago (18) Sure, they got a tie in K.C., but the only team without a goal this season deserves last
