PST writers predict the 2014 Major League Soccer standings, do you agree?

On the eve of the Major League Soccer season, we’ve been having a little fun over at ProSoccerTalk.

Amongst the plethora of top quality of season previews we’ve been churning out -- you can find them all here at PST Preview central -- we took some time to predict how the MLS standings will look after the final games of the regular season have been played.

The magic eight ball was working overtime as we discussed our picks. If only I could find that crystal ball...

The predictions from our six writers varied, but Sporting Kansas City and Portland Timbers are the clear favorites with our guys, while it’s not looking great for the likes of Chivas USA and D.C. United once again. Also, we think Toronto FC will use their new superstar signings, Michael Bradley and Jermain Defoe, to surge up the standings and finally make the playoffs.
