|In an attempt to reinvent themselves last year the Kansas City Wizards became Sporting Kansas City and moved into Livestrong Sporting Park, one of the best soccer stadiums in the league. They then went on to finish first in the Eastern Conference and advance to the final four before being eliminated by the Dynamo. Overcoming a 1-5-1 start showed the league the quality of the Kansas City side and earned them season-long momentum they can carry into this season. Much like the Dynamo, Kansas City lost a player to Montreal in the expansion draft, in this case Seth Sinovic, and then reacquired him in a trade. Leadership could be an issue for their young squad but if they can find it they will be a player in the East.
SuperDraft: F Dom Dwyer (1-16).
