    Joe "Bazooka" Cannon. Moreno a close second...

    I am a Metrostars fan, but I could not vote for Geuvara for two reasons: first, 5 of his goals were PKs, none of which resulted from fouls he drew, and second, his way-too-frequent and outlandish dissent.

    Joe's da man this year. He's class on and off the field, and the main reason the Rapids are in the playoffs.

    It's basically a two horse race between Cannon and Moreno since Guevara hasn't been MVP calibre for weeks. Plus add in the fact that Guevara is just a straight scumbag.

    So, I'm going to go with Moreno.

    If he doesn't play this year for DC, it's just 2003 all over again.

    No Moreno, no midfield dominance, no clutch Eskandarian goal scoring, no nothing.

    You can argue that Cannon was equally important for Colorado, but I don't think he affected as many as aspects of Colorado's game as Jaime did for DC.

    AND Jaime came out of a position where everyone had written him off. He's had major surgery, plus the stigma of being pretty much ineffective for the past 5 years. What was Jaime in March? A last minute, cheap signing with a lukewarm reception from DC fans. Everyone knew what Cannon was capable of. No one in March 2004 would've ever bet on Jaime being the new dominant playmaker in this league.

    And from what I gather, Jaime is just a wonderful guy, who always has time for autographs and photos for fans after games. His quote in my sig is evidence enough of his love for the DC United faithful.

    There is no doubt in my mind that Jaime Moreno is the Most Valuable Player in MLS 2004.

    Jaime Moreno - for being a team leader and producing consistently all season long.

    Comeback player of the year too.

    I personally don't think a Goalkeeper should by the MVP of the league. Don't get me wrong, I love Cannon's contribution to the Rapids this year. I think of this award in a similar way to baseball's MVP, where pitcher's are usually not considered. There's a separate and prestigious award for them, the Cy Young. Same thing here. There's a Goalkeeper of the year award. He'll get that, and it's well deserved.

    Guevara the second half of the year has been abysmal. There's just no way he gets it. The first half of the year he was a true difference maker during the run of play. I was truly impressed. But the award is for the whole season.

    Cannon not getting MVP this year is AN ABSOLUTE CRIME

    Cannon embodies the spirit and lifeblood of our club.....the Rapids ARE NOT the Rapids without Joe Cannon, period. His leadership and amazing attitude are the force behind our Defensive strength this year and our general on the pitch teamwork in light of a sorry ass manager. Joe Cannon, not anyone else, carried this team into the playoffs. HE IS THE REASON WHY WE'RE IN THE POSTSEASON. No one else can claim that for their team at all.

    Furthermore after seeing Joe's performance last Friday there really should be no more doubt in anyone's mind that Cannon is the MLS MVP, period.

    Postseason doesn't count for these awards, they have already been decided.

    I voted Jaime Moreno b/c I think he helped DC win more than the other 2 helped their teams.

    Even Metro fans have to admit that. Don't let the whole rivalry thing cloud your judgement.
