San Jose sharpshooter Chris Wondolowski is now, officially, the sharp-shootin’est shooter in MLS in a decade.

Goal No. 22 on the year for Wondolowski found its way past Seattle on Saturday night, which gives him the best season of goals since New England’s Taylor Twellman hit 23 in 2002.

Next time Wondolowski scores he will join Twellman and Raul Diaz Arce in a tie for the fifth-best all-time season of MLS goals.

With four matches remaining after this one, it would not be an awful bet that “Wondo” will get there, and that he might even move past those two into Top 3 or 4 territory.
