That's right, J11, Cbus is now tied with Philly for second in the East. Just one point behind the Bon Jovi Energy Drinks. Rebuilding year? I am laughing.

That said, we're still going to get thumped in the playoffs by whoever comes out of the West, I think.

Translation: He'll grumble all year long until Atleti has had enough, and then he'll be sold to Madrid next summer for about $7.50 less than his release clause, prompting Flor to exhault over the fantastic deal we got...

Speaking of Aguero, the one thing I will say about his colleague, I really appreciate Mr. Messi continuing to lead Argentina with about the same results as a Thomas Dooley. At least I'll never have to worry about anyone who has even remotely followed the sport longer than 4 years thinking Messi is a top 10 player all time.

Nope, he's too busy holding Khedira's bag.

Correction: You won't have to worry about anyone who has even remotely followed the sport longer than 4 years thinking Messi is a top 10 player all time until he scores his first La Liga goal. Then it will be Groundhog Day

Two things:

1) Come on now, don't be hating on Thomas Dooley.

2) Barca fans are lighting the torches and grabbing pitchforks as we speak. Now that R-Dog has been fired as many times as Taylor Twellman's been concussed I'd be worried, Bayern.

Well, if his Dad says so ...

I do like that 5 of the top 10 are Bayern players, while of the other 5, three were previously Bayern players.

Re Dooley: How many Honda POTY awards or MLS Best XI awards has Leo won?!?!?!

No doubt. How much of a joke is this? It sounds like the dad doesn't really have any idea and he's just saying something to get the reporters off his back (not that I blame him).
