Joshua Mayers’ power rankings
Last week’s rankings in parentheses
1 (5)Real Salt LakeNick Rimando was the star of Week 1 with nine saves, late PK stop to clinch win at L.A.
2 (2) PortlandNewcomer Gaston Fernandez had a thriller late equalizer; too bad broadcast missed it
3 (6) Sounders FCImproved to 7-1-1 against K.C. and faces Toronto next with 6-1-1 head-to-head advantage
4 (1) Sporting K.C.Has no time to dwell on last-minute loss with CONCACAF Champions League coming up
5 (3) L.A. GalaxyFunny to see Rob Friend (6 feet 5) embellish contact with Tony Beltran (5-8) to draw PK
6 (9) HoustonCoach said they might’ve played their best 30 min. ever racing to 3-0 lead against Revs
7 (15) VancouverNewcomers Sebastian Fernandez, Pedro Morales looked the real deal in thrashing of N.Y.
8 (13) ColumbusBuildup to first of three goals might’ve been the prettiest passing sequence of the week
9 (4) N.Y. Red BullsLooked helpless in Vancouver; are Thierry Henry and Jamison Olave that important?
10 (8) ColoradoStill amazing the team waited until opening weekend to hire Pablo Mastroeni as coach
11 (10) Toronto FCIs the hype deserved? Perhaps the most improved team in the offseason heads to Seattle
12 (12) PhiladelphiaSeconds from a stunning road win in Portland but couldn’t hang on (still looked good)
13 (14) FC DallasYoung Mauro Diaz looks like one to watch after his picture-perfect free kick vs. Impact
14 (11) San JosePerhaps unfair to drop Quakes three spots after a bye, but a lot of teams looked good
15 (7) New EnglandThe disappointment of the weekend, particularly on defense, after blowout loss in Houston
16 (19) Chivas USAEarly assist leader in MLS: ex-Sounder Mauro Rosales, who had two in win over Fire
17 (16) ChicagoContinued production of Benji Joya offers some optimism after losing to lowly Chivas
18 (18) MontrealThe week’s best move might have been Justin Mapp’s assist, but ‘D’ was team’s undoing
19 (17) D.C. UnitedSupposed improvements didn’t immediately show — at all — in three-goal home loss
