We've covered both the Western and Eastern Conferences and gone in depth about how each team has gotten better and improved more over the offseason. The league is considerably getting better each year, if you look at the improved lineups that every single team has. For this reason, the race for the MLS Cup should be a very exciting one this year. I'm not ready to count out ANYONE out of the playoff race this year, but I do have a pretty good idea of what the playoffs would look like.

To give you an idea of how up-in-the-air this MLS season is, the Dynamo, Red Bulls, Revolution, Fire, DC United and FC Dallas all got votes on who would win the MLS Cup this season. Votes were also cast in the "other catagory" as well.

So here's my overlook on the 2008 MLS Playoffs, showcasing all the matchups and the eventual winner of the MLS Cup next season. Enjoy.
