So, who was the best "finisher" in MLS this season? Of course, we could talk subjectively for hours about this, but just to create some interesting discussion, I though I'd look at some...ahem...numbers. You'll find my "Scoring Efficiencey" table below. Now I put this together in about an hour, cutting and pasting from MLS.net and sorting like crazy, so there may be some errors in there. Here was my methodolgy. First, I determined I only wanted to use run-of-play goals, so I adjusted shots and goals for PKs made and attemped to get a "run of play" set of numbers. Second, I arbitrarily included players who scored a minimum of 5 run of play goals. (That eliminated, for example, guys like Jeff Cunningham). Third, I normalized key numbers for 90 minutes. Fourth, I looked at percentages as evidence of "efficiency." Who is (a) putting the majority of their shots on frame and (b) putting the majority of their on-frame shots in the back of the net? And answer is....Alejandro Moreno. OK, OK...I know that sounds really goofy...and it probably is, since he just had a few goals. But he was awfully awfully efficient. To me, there are other more interesting things in this table. Table in next post below. I'll deal with that in a subsequent post.
