  • Seattle, LA favorites as MLS playoffs get going (The Associated Press)

    Seattle is trying to make MLS history. Los Angeles would love nothing more than to send Landon Donovan into retirement raising another trophy. New England is the hottest team in the league entering the playoffs after the addition of midfielder Jermaine Jones. The MLS Cup playoffs get started in earnest this weekend with the first of the two-leg, aggregate-score conference semifinals.

  • Revolution-Crew Preview (The Associated Press)

    Although all eyes have been on Jermaine Jones since he joined the New England Revolution, Columbus Crew midfielder Tony Tchani believes his team needs to contain MVP candidate Lee Nguyen in order to win this two-game, aggregate-goal semifinal series. The Revolution face their own set of challenges against a Columbus club seeking its seventh straight home win. Following a 1-9-1 stretch from May 31-Aug. 16 that included eight consecutive defeats, New England turned its season around by going 9-1-1 the rest of the way to earn the East's No. 2 seed. The Revolution (17-13-4) totaled 10 goals over a 12-game span leading up to the acquisition of Jones in late August.

  • Red Bulls-Sporting Kansas City Preview (The Associated Press)

    Sporting Kansas City and the New York Red Bulls have each clinched playoff spots. The defending MLS Cup champion meets last season's Supporters' Shield winner Sunday night in Kansas City for the regular-season finale with both clubs still hoping to avoid the Eastern Conference knockout round. "New York's a good team, that will be a tough game, but we're at home," Sporting striker Dom Dwyer told the league's official website. It's a big game and we have to focus on that to pick up some momentum for playoffs." Sporting (14-12-7) enters the weekend in third place with 49 points, tied with Columbus but holding the first tiebreaker because it has won one more game than the Crew.

  • Union-Crew Preview (The Associated Press)

    If the Columbus Crew are to have a chance at avoiding a knockout-round playoff matchup, they first must handle the task that awaits in their regular-season finale. The Crew can record a third straight victory by sweeping the three-game season series with the visiting Philadelphia Union on Sunday. Columbus (13-10-10) and Sporting Kansas City each have 49 points but Kansas City has one more win to give it the edge for third place in the Eastern Conference. The Crew, however, can avoid being part of that play-in match between the fourth and fifth seeds with a victory coupled with a Kansas City loss or draw Sunday night against fifth-place New York, which is two points back.
