MLS: Alltime leading goalscorers by team

Includes ALL competitions, not just MLS, which really should be the way of calculating the leaders. It's how many goals you've scored for the club in official games. The league top scorers (aka regular season) is a good statistic, but when you're talking about who is the club's alltime leading scorer, it really ought to include all competitions. If any of you saw the great Henry/Bergkamp "Centurians" dvds, they featured each player's first 100 goals for the club, and didn't limit it just to the league.

Be sure to come back the next few days, because I will be posting the leading goalscorer timeline for each team. So you'll be able to see who has been the leading scorer at any point in your MLS club's history. I don't really pimp myself much, but you won't be able to see this stuff anywhere else.

Here are the current alltime leading goalscorers:

DC    113    Jaime Moreno      
DAL 98 Jason Kreis
CHI 95 Ante Razov
KC 80 Preki
CLB 79 Brian McBride
LA 74 Cobi Jones
NE 69 Taylor Twellman
SJ 66 Ronald Cerritos
MIA 59 Diego Serna
COL 46 Paul Bravo
TB 44 Roy Lassiter
MET 44 Giovanni Savarese
RSL 12 Jason Kreis
CHV 4 Hector Cuadros/Thiago Martins/Isaac Romo

And if you need a(nother) reason to laugh at the Rapids and Metrostars, here you go. Most of these be will safe for years, unless you have a guy like Twellman with a meteoric rise. Guys like Razov and Kreis nearly triple the second place total for their team. I would say the only one (non-expansion) that could be broken in the next year is the Metros. Amado Guevara is 16 goals away. Chris Henderson was less than 10 away when they traded him. Pretty interesting stuff.

As I said, I will post the leading goalscorer timelines for each team in the next few days:

Sunday: CHI, COL, KC, MIA, SJ
Monday: CHV, DAL, LA, NE, TB
Tuesday: CLB, DC, MET, RSL

How amusing that Cobi "Mr. Assist" Jones is the leading scorer for LA. There may have been one season that he actually lead the team in goals. Guess that's what happens when you stick with one team long enough.

Also, check out Jason Kreis...tops for 2 teams.

He led them in 1998 and 2000. And if Ruiz wasn't traded, he would have become the leader this season. He was only 2 behind after last season.

Alas, I don't think that Guevara will be on next year's Metro squad, so Gio's mark just might stand for another 10 years.
