Week 19 preview


This is the week I set as my “pay date” for a wager with some friends before the season started. I promised to buy a beer for everyone who was sitting ahead of me by the all-star break. As it stands, there are only 3 out of about 65 who have a good shot at collecting. The one who seems most hell-bent on besting me is only 12 points ahead after I managed to claw back 63 points so far in this second segment. I’m only 26 points out of first, and while I don’t expect to take the poll-position this week, I think I get a few more points in my favor and hopefully catch at least one of the people ahead of me.

Team of the week:

Hesmer
Miranda, DeLaGarza, Corrales, Kimura
Larentowicz, Lindpere, Shea, Najar
Henry, Cummings
Subs: Saunders, Miller, Zusi, Wondolowski

Captains:

Cummings: I don’t think he’s as dangerous without his strike partner, Casey. He’s the best option, though, in a Colorado side predicted to score 4 this week.

Lindpere: Lindpere is still the hot player in New York. Even during their home loss against Dallas he looked like the most dangerous Red Bull.

Henry: He’s still got class and New York have two matches, plenty of time for that class to shine through.

Shea: Dallas have an interesting double this week, but should still find the net two or three times.

Wondolowski: He certainly isn’t in the form of last season, but still plenty capable of working magic.
