This week's MLS Power Rankings don't have much movement with the top tier teams.  All of them entered the week seeking to either maintain their spot or move up by getting results.  And, to their credit, all of them got positive results in their matches.  From winning a match on 1 shot (United) to putting 4 on the board (Vancouver), the top teams did their job.  Meanwhile, we have a new team at the bottom of the rankings: Seattle.  And boy have they earned it with their play over the last couple months.  They really miss their stars up front, and if they don't watch it, they will watch the rest of the Western Conference pass them by as the summer continues.

Our beloved Black & Red remains at the top spot, fresh off the "1 Shot, 1 Kill" match.  Because Seattle has fallen so far flat, Philly got to move out of the basement into the 19th hole.  The bottom half of the league is still struggling to make their mark and move up in the rankings.  So, have your say in the comments below.  Do you see United as #1?  Is Seattle at the bottom for you too?  Hit us up and let us know!
