My MLS power rankings — Week 23

Other MLS power rankings from around the league: ESPN.com, Soccer America, ProSoccerTalk, SI.com and MLSsoccer.com. I’m pretty sure I painted myself into a corner with the Impact, but here you go:

*     *     *

Team (prev. rank) Comment
1. N.Y. Red Bulls (4) Vaults to No. 1 on a 3-0-1 stretch that includes big wins over Impact, Kansas City, RSL
2. Montreal (1) Kicks off the CONCACAF Champions League group stage against the ‘Quakes at home
3. Portland (3) Will keep DP Diego Valeri around for a while, signing the Argentine to a multiyear deal
4. Sporting K.C. (2) Known for homefield advantage, but has earned just as many points on road this season
5. Real Salt Lake (5) Three-game winless streak might be forgotten by advancing to the U.S. Open Cup final
6. L.A. Galaxy (6) Is the DP hunt over? Omar Gonzalez could reportedly earn the designation with a raise
7. Colorado (8) Won season series vs. rival RSL for the first time since ’06 to reclaim Rocky Mountain Cup
8. Philadelphia (7) Jack McInerney hasn’t scored in over two months, a 524-minute drought dating to June 1
9. Sounders FC (12) On a 9-4-1 run since a woeful start and — oh yeah — just signed Clint Dempsey
10. Vancouver (10) Has a slim Cascadia Cup lead but has played one more game than Seattle, Portland
11. San Jose (14) Chris Wondolowski scored for the first time since May 8, then did again in a 2-0 win
12. FC Dallas (9) Club-record scoreless drought has reached 450 minutes, ninth longest in league history
13. Houston (13) Bounced back nicely from a seven-game winless streak by going unbeaten in four (3-0-1)
14. Chicago (15) Mike Magee stayed in the Golden Boot lead (14 goals) with his eighth score in 10 games
15. New England (11) Reports are Juan Agudelo will be joining Stoke City of the EPL after the season
16. Toronto FC (16) Set to host Seattle on a winning streak for the first time since July 14-18, 2011
17. Columbus (17) Will six losses in seven result in a coaching change just after an ownership change?
18. D.C. United (19) Three goals in a win over Montreal matched the production from its previous six games
19. Chivas USA (18) Carlos Bocanegra, brought in for leadership and composure, lost his cool and saw red
