MLS Fantasy Round 4

Le Toux Fast Toux Furious I for one had an uneven week of MLS Fantasy League action. Most of my picks were right, but my team did horribly, partly because of a Donovan Ricketts red card for a clumsily executed karate kick clearance. (It really was bad technique, as the entire sequence could have been avoided had he just stayed in front of Deshorn Brown to collect the thru ball) Plays like the Ricketts red card serve as a helpful reminder that some weeks, no matter how much planning and preparation you put into your lineup, you're going to have bad luck. Maybe even rotten luck. So don't...

Ex-Sounder Andrew Weber in line to start against Seattle in April 5 game at Portland

Major Link Soccer: Rickets to Miss Seattle Fixture

Portland's first-team keeper has been suspended an extra match for performing a double fist punch with his feet. Seattle After the Seattle Sounders take on (beat?) the Columbus Crew this weekend, their next test will be going down to Portland in a match against the Timbers. But after Donovan Ricketts forgot he wasn't in a bouncy house or WWE ring, he found himself with a red card and now an additional suspension. That will make him inelligible for the Cascadia Cup match. Former Sounder Andrew Weber will be up in the place of Ricketts. Weber is a good reserve, but he isn't a healthy...

The Portland Timbers conceded two penalty kicks in two minutes to hand a 2-0 victory to the Colorado Rapids in Commerce City, CO today.
