Team strike rate leaders (part 3 of 3)
Spencer is a Rapids legend. Still, that's the lowest rate for any team leader. Also, they join the Wizards as the only teams with one player at 0.40 goals per game. The good news is that Peguero was a nice find, and along with Cunningham they have a decent attack now.
If Ruiz had one more goal, he would be at the top of this list. He's currently at 0.58 for his one season in Dallas. GAM has had a ton of sub appearances, so he would be better off under total minutes. Looks like Washington did slightly better with the Crew (0.38).
The Galaxy had 15 guys with 15 goals, more than any other team. Most had around 10 or 11. Ruiz had a brilliant 2002, with 35 goals in 36 games (much like Lassiter in 1996, 34 in 36). Taking penalties helps, too. Gomez really had a gareat year, as he cleaned up in the Open Cup. Hernandez was not a bad player, but he didn't come close to justifying his transfer fee ($4 million).
So, Graziani is #1 for two teams. The league never should've loaned him back to Ecuador. Classy player. Lagos fares suprisingly well here. Those were some great teams though. Interesting to see Lozzano ahead of Wynalda.
