Hey guys, sorry but this is going to end up being a shorter version this week because I'm really busy. There have been some pretty big deals, Both Jaime Penedo (LA) and Alexander Lopez (Houston) have joined MLS. Meanwhile, Colorado has signed their first DP in league history, Gabby Torres. Who says Stan Kroneke's teams don't spend any money?
Stream of the Week: Vancouver – San Jose
It is as simple as this, Vancouver are fun to watch, San Jose are not. I'm fairly optimistic about this game being promising, but MLS should really stop broadcasting San Jose in it's stream of the week. That's like hanging a pair of underwear with skidmarks on an outdoor clothesline to dry. Just don't do it man, regardless of how convenient it might seem. Draw.
Toronto – Seattle
Seattle will be missing EJ and Evans, and Dempsey is unlikely to make his debut. Draw.
Columbus – New York
New York have been on a roll recently, don't see why that stops. Fizzy lifting drinks win.
Philadelphia – DC United
DC United are going to the Open Cup finals and just beat Montreal, but the Union have not lost twice in a row all season. Union win.
This is a very interesting game on paper, Chicago is hot and Montreal is good. Draw.
Sporting Kansas City – New England
Will Charlie Davies debut for New England? Maybe, but they'll tie either way.
Real Salt Lake – Houston
RSL are starting to look like the class of the league. Salt Lake wins.
Dallas – LA Galaxy
Dallas have not been playing well at all lately, and the Galaxy have Donovan back. LA win.
Chivas USA - Colorado
Less of a pushover than it would have been in the past, but the Rapids win this.
