Milestone Appearances

Which players have made 100, 200, or even 300 appearances for a single MLS club? These numbers include all (meaningful) competitions. Since the last update (before the 2007 season), we've inducted 10 new members of the 100 club, 2 new members of the 200 club, and 1 new member of the 300 club. It may take many more years for a 400 club to form; unfortunately Cobi Jones was at 392 when he retired.

Interestingly, 10 new 100 club members is the fewest for any year since the first man did it (see below for yearly data and more stats).

As the BigSoccer thread said, it would be good to have a list of what's defined as "meaningful competitions," for instance I suspect the short-lived CONCACAF Cup Winners Cup is not being included, but would like to know for sure.
