Rafael Gomes, Christian Gomez, Jose Luis Burciaga Jr.
Nicolas Hernandez, Zach Thornton, Jose Cancela, Brandon Prideaux
Last season was a rough one offensively for the Rapids, they had a pretty good year at the back all things considered, it comes down to this if Gomes, and Gomez and Gomez, can score goals, if they can the playoffs will follow, if not then another long season awaits.
playoffs, 8th overall
Danny Davino, Andre Rocha, Josh Lambo
Carlos Ruiz, Chris Gbandi, Clarence Goodson, Denilson
Dallas, last year was a sturdy back-line away from the a semi finals birth. Now however they are going to be a more balanced side, but one that will be worse for wear. Kenny Cooper will be looked to, as they begin life without Carlos Ruiz. Watch out for Ray Burse to overtake Dario Sala later this season.
no playoffs, 9th overall
San Jose Earthquake
Joe Cannon, Ryan Cochrane, Ned Grabavoy, Gavin Glinton, Kei Kamara, Shea Salianas, Nick Garcia
Frank Yallop returns to San Jose to man the Earthquake, the expansion franchise i think will play very well, but there lack of any sort of depth, with just a 14 man roster as it currently sits will keep them from being overly competitive.
no playoffs 12th overall
Kansas City Wizards
Claudio Lopez, Ivan Trujillo, Chance Myers, Roger Espinoza
Eddie Johnson, Nick Garcia, Jose Luis Burciaga Jr
With the loss of Eddie Johnson, If the Wizards are going to go back to the playoffs its going to be on the back of Claudio Lopez the former Racing, and America(MEX) player will have to be the taker of many of Eddie's goals, Seally and Conrad will have to contribute more, this will most likely be an adjustment year for KC.
no playoffs, 13th place
