Match Day Quick Reference Card, Sounders vs. Revolution

UPDATE: All fixed!

First a little housekeeping: You'll notice a slight change in the right rail. Instead of having conference standings, we've switched to a single table. The top two teams in each conference are highlighted with a line marking the playoff cutoff. The teams are actually ordered by PPM, but we also have points, records and goal-differential. Hopefully, you will find that more useful than the standard conference standings which requires you to look back and forth to figure out the playoff race.

As for this week's lineups, we're expecting Mike Seamon to get his first MLS start in place of Nathan Sturgis. We're not 100 percent on this, but it sounds like Sturgis' hip injury may at least warrant some caution and with Seamon a capable backup and facing the struggling Revolution, this seems like a good opportunity to get Seamon some time.

The rest of the starters are pretty much what we can expect the team to do whenever it's at full health for the rest of the season.

On the Revolution side, they are without the services of Sainey Nyassi (for the same reason the Sounders are without his twin brother Sanna). We're also expecting Matt Reis to be back in goal after missing a game with a back injury. 

There also appears to be good news on the weather front. I just checked the forecast and it appears as if the game will actually be played in clear skies as Hurricane Earl is supposedly going to miss the Foxborough area.
