Joshua Mayers' MLS power rankings
Rankings run Wednesdays during the regular season
Team (prev. rank) Comment
1. FC Dallas (1) Next win would be No. 7 on the season. Didn't get to seven wins in 2012 until August
2. Houston (3) Unbeaten streak is up to four after beating Los Angeles in an MLS Cup rematch
3. Montreal (4) May schedule is packed with four games in MLS, three in the Canadian Championship
4. Sporting K.C. (6) Kei Kamara is back from his Norwich City loan, and bought fans Chipotle upon his return
5. L.A. Galaxy (2) Landon Donovan has gone an uncharacteristic 0 for 2 in penalty kicks this season
6. Portland (5) Hasn't lost in seven games but did lose Mikael Silvestre for the year with an ACL injury
7. N.Y. Red Bulls (8) Many were surprised to see superstar Thierry Henry take a pay cut of over $1 million
8. Real Salt Lake (9) Joao Plata is short in height (5 feet 3) but not production (four assists, MLS co-leader)
9. Columbus (7) Lost to New York, 1-0, at Crew Stadium, ending a 12-game home unbeaten streak
10. Philadelphia (10) Injuries could force Bakary Soumare, who had requested a trade, into the lineup
11. Colorado (14) Edson Buddle scored a fortunate winner vs. Toronto, but might that goal get him going?
12. San Jose (13) The dramatic comebacks never cease to amaze as Sam Cronin was the latest hero
13. Chivas USA (11) Early season surprise has fallen back to the earth with a disappointing 0-3-1 stretch
14. Chicago (15) Robbie Rogers doesn't want to play there, but will the Fire be fairly compensated for him?
15. New England (16) Defense has recorded two straight shutouts and five in eight games this season
16. Sounders FC (17) Heads to Kansas City on a 5-0-1 streak in the series, including three straight road wins
17. Vancouver (12) Tough-as-nails midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker called his team "soft" after loss to RSL
18. Toronto FC (18) How bad has it been since July 28 of last season? How about a woeful 1-14-8
19. D.C. United (19) Would match a franchise-worst losing streak of six with a loss to Dynamo on Wednesday
