Sounders start the week out of last place for the first time this season

05132013 standings


The standings don’t lie. The Sounders are no longer a last-place team for the first time this season.

Until this past weekend, Seattle had been at least tied for the fewest points in the Western Conference since the end of each round of games. “Last” was a shared honor with the Colorado Rapids for the first few weeks, and then became the Sounders’ sole designation after a March 30 loss at Real Salt Lake.

Five games later — and five games unbeaten — there is a new team in the basement, Chivas USA, which is on a 0-4-1 streak.

When you look at points per game, Seattle is actually sixth in the conference. Though things are pretty competitive in the West, as the Sounders could be in a playoff position or back in last at the end of the upcoming round of games.

What do you think? Does it feel like a weight is lifted with the team out of last place?
