SEATTLE – As good as the forward combination of Fredy Montero and Eddie Johnson has been in league play, the David Estrada-Sammy Ochoa partnership might be just as promising in non-league competition.

The two backups each scored for the Sounders during a 3-1 win over Marathón on Wednesday, giving them a combined 15 goals in all competitions this season. Nine of those goals have come outside of league play, with six coming in CONCACAF Champions League alone.

SANDY, Utah – When Real Salt Lake were stunningly undone in the finals of the CONCACAF Champions League in May of last year, they went into an extended funk. Tuesday's CCL elimination at the hands of Herediano may not sting quite that badly, but the Claret-and-Cobalt refuse to fall into the same trap this time around.

"Well I guess there's only one thing left to do ... win the whole [effing] thing."
– Jake Taylor, Major League

If you remember the 1989 classic like I do, you know the scene well. The ragtag but plucky Cleveland Indians had just been informed they were constructed as a band of misfits in order to be so bad, the owner would be able to move the team. It became a rallying point for The Tribe. And may or may not have been where Charlie Sheen got the idea of “tiger blood.”
