Another Round of Power Rankings - Now with Super Fun Stats!

Most of the discussion this week revolved around the differences between Tier Two and Tier Three (still) and what it means for the Sounders to be in the US Open Cup Final, does that mean that they are contending for a Cup? One voter said yes. And one voter is still hanging on to the Los Angeles Galaxy as a Cup contender.

And without commentary I will just offer you this link to some select stats for every player with an appearance in an MLS match this season. Peruse, and tell me what you learn. I'm dropping you into the Sounders sorted by Goal +/-. I had a fancy table I was going to put up looking at different ways to play the CM and RW, but with the injuries at this point there's no need for lineup juggling.

Power rankings after the break - your comments, in comments.
