The Drew Carey-owned Seattle Sounders FC has probably had the best single season ever for an expansion team in any sport.
Seattle is third overall in the MLS rankings, and third in the Western Conference. I have a personally like Roger Levesque, who is from my hometown of Portland, Maine.
Anyway, the Sounders are lead by Freddy Montero on offense, who has eight goals in 14 games, but he's on loan and likely won't return for the Sounders next season.
The Sounders have an all right schedule, with tough games against Houston, Chivas USA, DC United, Chicago, and Columbus. They also have easy matches against New England, Los Angeles, Kansas City and FC Dallas.
Seattle will have to win at least a few of the tough games against Chivas and Houston if they want an assured spot in the MLS playoffs.
So far this season, Seattle is 6-7-3.
