What gets interesting though is the middle. With eight teams likely in the playoffs, only the Kansas City Wizards are left in our "Outside looking in" third tier. They're the only team left with a shot. But do they really have a shot? With four games left and trailing the Colorado Rapids by eight points, not much. The question is whether or not the Rapids will continue to perform like they did against D.C. United on Saturday night. If so, they might not earn another point the rest of the year.
