Earlier this season, we had a couple of lively threads going about DMB, with some entertaining back-and-forth about the guy -- scorer or not a scorer, technical shortcomings vs. speed, abilkty to cross or not, durability vs getting pounded, and so forth. Well, the MLS season is in the books, and I thought I'd present a sampling of numerical items about DMBs season so as to provide still yet ANOTHER opportunity to discuss, arguably, our most intriguing young American star. Here we go: --DMB finished the season with 19 points in 22 MLS games. That is the same number of points as Clint Mathis in the same number of games. 13 players had more points than him -- of those 13, 10 could be considered more or less full time forwards. --Meanwhile, DMB took just 45 shots this season, to score his 7 goals. This amounts to fewer than half the shots of many of the scorer-types ahead of him in the points category. Compare that to Twellman (90), Razov (119), Ralph (91), Spencer (81), Preki (92), Ruiz (85). Donovan in contrast took just 52 shots to score his 12 goals. --He didn't break the 100 fouls suffered mark, as I had predicted, but he came awfully close with 96 total. He suffered a foul every 20 minutes. Closest competitor in this category was Carlos "Do you like my Speedos?" Ruiz with 87 FS, followed by Ben Olsen, with 80. Despite the pounding, he finished the seasons strong and is rested heading into the playoffs. Bottom line, I think this a typical MLS season from DMB, and would expect him to gather points at the USMNT level somewhere between half to two thirds the pace. However, I will say that in the run-up to the Open Cup championship, he was undoubtedly the Fire's most potent offensive weapon, and may reprise that role in the playoffs, when the stakes are suitably high.
