Pat Noonan was named MLS player of the week for his two goals in the 2-1 win over the Metros. Good news for Noonan, who stepped up big time on Saturday night. But Brad Feldman should stop proclaiming Noonan the prime candidate for MLS Rookie of the Year. Chicago's Ralph will be unanimous unless Feldman has a vote. Noonan could be second, but it will be a distant second. He has scored some nice goals and been a positive addition, even if he is a defensive liability when he plays in midfield. Let's just keep things in perspective.
