Three Lists for June 6

Here’s this week’s installment of my list of three lists. I’m tossing the coaches list back onto the pile this week.

Top Three Teams:
  1. Kansas City Wizards (adjusted scariness 2.74—knocking off the Revolution and the Red Bulls is pretty good)
  2. New York Red Bulls (adjusted scariness 2.62—they dropped a game to KC, but not by much)
  3. Toronto (adjusted scariness 2.15—They’ve gotten some great results over the last 5 weeks, we’ll see how good they really are this week when New York comes to play)
Bottom Three Teams:
  1. Columbus Crew (adjusted scariness – 0.12— winless in their last five games, and they’re the only team with a negative adjusted scariness score)
  2. Chicago Fire (adjusted scariness 1.00—they finally got a win, but it was against Columbus)
  3. Real Salt Lake (adjusted scariness 1.46— they’ve proved that they can hold strong teams scoreless, but they really need a win)
Three Coaches on the Hot Seat
  1. Columbus Crew— Sigi Schmid (How much longer will he hang on?)
  2. Chicago Fire — Dave Sarachan (He’s probably got at least a couple of games after Blanco arrives, but how much longer?)
  3. Chivas USA — Preki (The crowds are down and they’ve only been able to beat the Seattle Sounders and FC Dallas in the last month — it doesn’t look good.)

I’ve listed the adjusted scariness rating for each team in the first two lists.
