10 Toronto FC
In the West, L.A. has the talent to become the first MLS team to three-peat, even with the departure of David Beckham and the self-imposed sabbatical of Landon Donovan. This is now Robbie Keane's team. And look for Portland to become a surprise playoff qualifier under new coach Caleb Porter, while the heat will get turned up in soccer-mad Seattle if the Sounders can't put together a title run under Sigi Schmid. In the East, Graham Zusi--led K.C. will continue its habit of dominating the regular season only to fall to Houston in the playoffs. For the third straight year, we'll most likely see a Houston-L.A. final, only this time the Dynamo will raise the MLS Cup.
