MLS Ratings as of July 21

The word for today is parity. The home field advantage is inching up to 90 points, and teams from RSL down to NE are separated by less than 90 points, so unless the stronger team plays at home the game is likely to be a statistical toss-up. Of course, DC remains an exception, falling off the bottom. The ranks for teams in the middle don't mean much; the rating differences are too small to have any significance. Home field advantage is looking like a big factor in the closing months of the season.

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
