We Live in a 'Robbie Keane is MVP of MLS' World

Robbie Keane topped my MLS rating system this year. He was also number one over and Squawka. Castrol Index and MLS fantasy both had him 3rd.

Keane is a special player that had a special year in Major League Soccer, no doubt. What does it mean that a 34 year old scorer went for 19 goals and 14 assists? I have a few (mostly pretentious) ideas, ultimately though - not his problem. He's still playing on an international level and has mastered the art of unlocking MLS defenses.
