On the field, all the time (Update)

previous post

Okay, on July 3, there were 17 players who had played every minute of MLS action. Since then:

7/4-Amado Guevara misses game due to yellow card suspension.
7/20-Zach Wells benched for Tony Meola.
7/23-Chris Leitch benched for Ryan Suarez.

So all three Metrostars are off the list, bringing us down to 14 and making them the third team totally eliminated (after RSL and Chicago).

2005 Candidates

CHV-Ezra Hendrickson
CLB-Simon Elliot
COL-Nat Borchers, Joe Cannon
DAL-Scott Garlick
DC-Bobby Boswell
KC-Nick Garcia, Bo Oshoniyi
LA-Todd Dunivant, Kevin Hartman
NE-Jay Heaps, Michael Parkhurst, Matt Reis
SJ-Pat Onstad

The list will soon be pared even further, as three players have earned suspensions and will be eliminated on 8/6. Those guys are Boswell, Garcia and Heaps.

Personally, I think Parkhurst is still my choice among the position players. I guess my second pick would be Ezra. Among the keepers, Hartman and Onstad seem the most likely to make it. Reis and Cannon both could be called up to the national team. Oshoniyi is not a good keeper, but he doesn't have anyone behind him. I guess Garlick is the most likely to get eliminated, due to having a strong backup.
