MLS 2006: Who will join the 200 club?

Last year on September 21, I blogged about the MLS players who had made 200 appearances for their team in all competitions. There were 22 such players then, and that's how the 2005 season ended. Here they are:

200 Club Members

***Chris Armas CHI 213
***C.J. Brown CHI 249
Mauricio Cienfuegos LA 270
Mike Clark CLB 265
Jeff Cunningham CLB 219
Marco Etcheverry DC 241
***Nick Garcia KC 213
***Kevin Hartman LA 273
Chris Henderson COL 204
***Cobi Jones LA 329
Chris Klein KC 235
Jason Kreis DAL 287
Brian Maisonneuve CLB 208
Jesse Marsch CHI 260
Brian McBride CLB 200
***Jaime Moreno DC 266
Oscar Pareja DAL 206
Preki KC 254
***Zach Thornton CHI 248
Greg Vanney LA 212
Richie Williams DC 213
***Kerry Zavagnin KC 212

All numbers are through 2005. The ones with the asterisks still play for that team. Cobi Jones is already in the 300 club, and it looks like Hartman and Moreno could join him soon.

But there's only a handful of players who have a chance of making it this year:

Ben Olsen DC 196
Bobby Rhine DAL 180
Peter Vagenas LA 162
Joey Franchino NE 161
Jim Curtin CHI 160
Jay Heaps NE 154

Those are the only other guys with 150+ appearances for their current club. Olsen and Rhine are probable, but the rest are looking at 2007.

But Kreis won't hit 300 soon? Did I miss something? Is he injured again?

Or am I out of touch, and he's on his way out?

He now plays for RSL, the 287 appearances listed are for Dallas.
