Just when you think you’ve got ’em figured out…

I don’t think it’s any secret that I don’t believe the Revs are a particularly good MLS team, but I have to admit, I was starting to believe just a little bit.
In a short tournament, with a veteran goalkeeper, a stingy defense, and just enough offense… you know, it wouldn’t be the first time a team like that won (…I’m looking at you, Kansas City).
But when you give up four goals at home to a team that hadn’t scored in weeks, well it just kind of shocks you back to reality.
And spare me the complains about the officiating. Did Shalrie actually make contact with his boot? Did he miss him by inches? Who knows? I do know that he put himself in a bad position, and he needs to be smarter than that.
So now the Revs face a cross-country trip to face Chivas USA without Joseph. Five of their final eight games are on the road, and their three remaining home games are against Seattle, Chicago and Columbus.
The playoffs are not a sure thing.
