Team (prev. rank) Comment
1. Portland (2) Remarkable 13-game unbeaten streak (6-0-7) vaults Caleb Porter’s Timbers to the top
2. Montreal (1) Lost to Crew, but remains the only team in the East that hasn’t lost to a team in the West
3. Real Salt Lake (4) Hosted the USMNT for a big World Cup qualifier Tuesday, hosts Seattle next on Saturday
4. FC Dallas (3) Avoided being shut out longer than any other team until Saturday’s 1-0 loss to the Timbers
5. N.Y. Red Bulls (5) Heads to Philadelphia on Sunday having won the last five matchups in the series
6. Sporting K.C. (6) All-Star Game fan voting has Graham Zusi as top midfielder, Matt Besler as top defender
7. Sounders FC (8) Renews the RSL rivalry this weekend having gone 5-5-5 head-to-head in all competitions
8. Colorado (7) Nathan Sturgis’s three goals? Surprising. Another bad tackle by Atiba Harris? Not so much
9. New England (9) Federal Way’s Kelyn Rowe has notched two goals and two assists in his past three games
10. L.A. Galaxy (10) Acquiring Pablo Mastroeni was a smarter move than whatever led to those third uniforms
11. Columbus (13) Not long after losing Eddie Gaven, defender Glauber also goes down with an ACL injury
12. Houston (11) Curiously hasn’t scored or allowed a goal in the first 15 minutes of games all season
13. Vancouver (14) Kenny Miller silenced a lot of critics with a two-goal, Player of the Week performance
14. Philadelphia (12) Ex-Sounder Sebastien Le Toux is perhaps an unlikely league leader in assists with six
15. San Jose (16) Interim coach Mark Watson won his first game, also got into it with Rapids players/coaches
16. Chicago (15) Mike Magee has four goals in four games with his new club: MLS (2), U.S. Open Cup (2)
17. Toronto FC (17) Beating D.C. gave the lowly Reds just their second league win in their last 28 games
18. Chivas USA (18) New coach Jose Luis Real inherits a group on a five-game losing streak by 15-1 score
19. D.C. United (19) It has been 13 games since the last win, tied for the sixth-worst drought in MLS history
