MLS Power Rankings

Still messing around with power rankings by position. As with any "Power Rank", it's not an exact science. I'm hoping to get this to the point of at least providing a general indication of how well a team is doing by position. So far I think it holding its own.

One of the things I'm looking at is the number of players at a position for a given team. Generally speaking, the assumption I make is that if a team has multiple players playing in one position over many games then the weaker they must be at it. The glaring exception here GK for the Red Bulls. Their goal tending as a team has been excellent, but because they have used a 3 different keepers in the first third of the seaon it makes it look like they are struggling there. I'll see if it works itself out as the season rolls on.
