Projecting the Seattle Sounders starting lineup this week against Toronto FC was a bit challenging this week. It sounds like coach Sigi Schmid has not exactly been blown away by Mike Fucito, which could herald the return of Nate Jaqua to the starting lineup and it's not exactly clear whether or not Alvaro Fernandez is once again fit enough to start.
All that said, we're rolling the dice and projecting both Fucito and Fernandez to get the start. We see no reason why Fredy Montero won't be back starting, and it seems like Mauro Rosales may be more effective coming off the wing than in the middle where we expect to see Brad Evans get the nod. In the back, there's no reason to expect any big changes, although Patrick Ianni could be back in the mix.
TFC's lineup was provided to us by Waking the Red, who took time off his vacation to provide this to us. He sees Julian de Guzman reclaiming his starting spot after his stint with the Canadian National Team, and starting alongside former Souner Nathan Sturgis. He also projects youngster Doneil Henry receiving his third straight start.
