The case has been made among this blog's comments that while the theme of the 2009 MLS season was parity, this season some notable haves and have-nots have developed.
So far, the top "have" has been the Los Angeles Galaxy, which arrives at Qwest Field for a 1 p.m. game with the Sounders. And that sets this up as a really interesting game: either a chance for the Sounders to get a great result to go along with some recently improved play ... or continued frustration and increasing trouble in the MLS standings.
All that is sort of the topic of our preview story in today's paper.
Here's a preview from MLSsoccer.com.
I'll open a new running gameday post from Qwest later this morning.
