Another big congrats to Kellyn for this achievement. It was a bit disappointing to not see Matt Hedges or Walker Zimmerman also earn the call but at least we can say those guys got the extra rest that they deserve here.
Nothing like a 7-0 romp over Houston. I’ll just point that one out right away. They have one more game today, one that they should win.
Well we didn’t get a ton of help over the weekend in this race as the point lead is now down to two. Way to go Houston.

And more on that lone MLS match of the weekend. Houston is now officially eliminated from playoff contention while the Rapids will finish no lower than number two in the west. Crazy stat, this is the first time in Colorado’s history that they’ll finish higher than third in the Western Conference regular season.
Here is another round of the top trades of this season type list. Yep, no real argument here with any of these trades discussed in this post.
I kind of wonder if this will be his final season. I’m sure NYCFC would love to have an open DP slot.
You kind of wonder how much truth there are to these rumors but there is starting to be more smoke coming from this fire.
The USL playoffs are now down to the final four after this past weekend and only one independent team remains in Louisville. Three MLS-owned teams stand in the way (SKC, VAN and NY).
Sure it will Bill. Sure it will.

While the Hex is a big deal in qualifying, I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing a change in how the region handles its World Cup Qualifying. A couple larger groups that give teams a better shot wouldn’t be bad.
