(5-3-1 scoring system)

The very first unanimous BASA, and well deserved at that. Second place was also no contest, and the rest were left to fight for whatever scraps remained. Even though it's just meager support, Guevara doesn't deserve the third place spot. He was much better last year. There really wasn't a clear third choice and this vote reflects that.

The top two switched places from last year, where De Rosario won and Gomez was second (tied with Shalrie Joseph). BTW, MLS this year and last year now uses "De Rosario" instead of DeRosario. I wonder if they just screwed up and didn't change it for a while (probably).

who voted for Landon Donovan as a midfielder? He probably spent 20 minutes in that position all season. He was an outright forward for the Galaxy.
