Colorado Rapids continued their losing ways on Wednesday night, this time traveling to Chicago to lose to the host Fire 2-1.

It was, in a nutshell, part of the litany of coming up short that has grown to characterize this team. This is not a squad that surprises you with a convincing performance.

Debacle In LA

From the high of Friday night to a disaster on Saturday. The Rapids came out flat, got injured, lost their minds, and lost the game. The game started with the Avs still playing, so those of us in Denver missed the first 6-7 minutes, which included (apparently) the first of many great stops by Irwin.

General thoughts on the game...
The game started off quite fast and physical with a lot of turnovers. There were a number of missed passes by both teams and of course the goal that decided the game was a mistake on the goalie's part.

Larentowicz shipped to Fire

The Colorado Rapids continued to dismantle any of the remaining value of the MLS Cup-winning side of 2010, shipping Jeff Larentowicz to the Chicago Fire for cash, a draft choice and an international roster spot.

Larentowicz, the consummate professional during his three years in Colorado, thanked the team for the opportunity as he departed for the Windy City.

The Colorado Rapids closed the season in a fashion nearly identical to the way the team started 2012.

The Rapids beat the Houston Dynamo 2-0 on Saturday night in Commerce City. The team closed the season on a two-game winning streak, the same way the Rapids opened the campaign.

In the four games that bookend the 34-game season, the Rapids scored eight goals, allowed only one and earned four wins.

Recap: Well, that sucked.

The Portland Timbers once again go to Colorado and get absolutely pasted. The Colorado Rapids did everything they were supposed to do and wanted to do, meanwhile the Timbers looked listless on offense and some of the defenders looked clueless. 3-0 loss and back into the cellar.

The woeful Portland Timbers proved once again to be the salve to whatever ails the Colorado Rapids.

The Timbers came to Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City on Wednesday night and fell flat in a 3-0 drubbing. This scoreline was the same as the one that Portland suffered when last visiting Colorado at the end of June, and came five days after the Timbers beat the Rapids 1-0 in Portland.

The Rapids head for the Rose City on Friday night to face the Timbers, a team they have never lost to. Portland, of course, is where long-time Rapids fan favorite Kosuke Kimura was traded to and I'm sure he's going to want to show Colorado what they're missing.

On Fabian Castillo's performance: It's a combination of three things. He's maturing into the player we all hoped he would be. He's got tremendous speed, quickness and he's creating some really, really dangerous situations. The second thing is I think it was a good matchup for him. The third thing is he really wants to do well for Oscar [Pareja].

Drew Moor played some 123 games for FC Dallas from when he was drafted in 2005 by Colin Clarke to August 2009, when he was traded to Colorado in exchange for fellow Dallas-Fort Worth area product and current FCD captain Ugo Ihemelu.

Drew Moor hasn't played for FC Dallas for almost three years now after the Dallas native was traded to Colorado in Sept. 2009 for current FCD captain Ugo Ihemelu. But before being shipped to the Rapids, he had nearly four good seasons with Dallas. One of his teammates during that span was Bobby Rhine, the former FCD player turned broadcaster and front office employee who left us way too early last September.

Another 2-1 loss

Stop me if this sounds familiar.

The Rapids lost 2-1.

This time Colorado fell behind in the opening moments, immediately tied the match, and then faded out on Saturday night at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City.

This time the Seattle Sounders were the beneficiaries of this latest loss, but the victors hardly mattered as the Rapids completed an 0-for-July streak that leaves the team questioning its ability.

MLS Cup champions in 2010, the Rapids slogged through 2011. After the first month of the campaign, only a July dismantling of New York (4-0) and an August domination of Columbus (a 2-0 shellacking that looked like an 11-on-9 game) stood out.

On twitter today there was quite a bit on talk about Brek Shea and coach Hyndman.

It is GOOD to be back. Both from a two-week break and back to winning ways. One player especially glad to be back is Goalkeeper Michael Gspurning, in his first game action since early May. And he didn't disappoint. After an inexplicably undefended through ball, Gspurning returned to his old, box-dominating ways with 3 saves and loads of punchouts.

The teams scored a goal each in a bracing first few minutes of the match. The first came off another Eddie Johnson header - a skill Seattle's been trying to acquire for years without much luck until now.
