The Saturday 6 PM game between Western Conference foes is on Q13 FOX and Univision-Seattle. Colorado Rapids enter the match 4-2-1 +2 and are a perfect 3-0 at home this year. Seattle Sounders FC are 2-3-1 -1 and have yet to earn a road win. Former Sounder Marco Pappa is out injured. Both Clint Dempsey and Nelson Valdez are questionable in the game.

Marco Pappa hoping to live up to expectations with Rapids

Marco Pappa is not shying away from expectations. He knows a lot is expected of him at his new club in 2016, and he is keen on delivering.

One of the more intriguing names remaining in the MLS Re-Entry Draft list, Pappa was scooped up by the Colorado Rapids on Tuesday.

Who Are The Best Players & Best Values in MLS Free Agency, Re-Entry

Evaluating players is a messy thing. With MLS's first Free Agency class nowavailable for purchase and MLS's yearly Re-EntryRound 2 Draft beginningtomorrow (Thursday, 12/17), itisworth looking at who's available...and who's worth being available.

I'musing the same data I've usedpreviously to look at player performance: The OPTA-based Squawkarating system and MLS Player Salary information.

Obafemi Martins

Cristian Roldan belongs in the middle

A strong rookie season in 2015 was partially hidden by poor role selection.

Chance creation in soccer is driven by both skill in distribution and player role (e.g. a central defender should be expected to generate a scoring chance in relatively few circumstances on the field), so the list of Sounders leaders in that category should come as little surprise.

The Fire desperately needed a win. Not only because of where they stand in the table but Chicago had never beaten the Seattle Sounders (0-6-3) since they entered the league as an expansion team in 2009. Playing at home against a Seattle side missing Obafemi Martins, Clint Dempsey, and Marco Pappa seemed as good a time as any even though the Fire were without David Accam, Shaun Maloney, Joevin Jones, and Jeff Larentowicz.
