With just two weeks remaining in the regular season, there isn't much competition for spots in the MLS playoffs.

But there is still competition in the SBNhanced MLS Power Rankings! This week the big change is the Seattle Sounders finally journeying into the top tier. A second consecutive Open Cup title and a win in Kansas City when the home team really needed it more helped give the voters what they needed to see to include the Sounders with the rest of the best teams in MLS.

We also had some slight movement towards the bottom, as the Chicago Fire were able to hop back into the third tier following their victory over the Columbus Crew, and the Philadelphia Union moved up because of... um... because of their home loss to the Galaxy? Ok, it doesn't always make sense.

Lastly I should mention that we're now up to 11 votersf or the first time thanks to today's addition of SB Nation's new Kansas City Wizards blog: The Daily Wiz.
