MLS roundup: week 30

This will be the only league roundup in the world, because for some reason Major League Soccer insists on playing games while everyone else in on international duty.

There were four games -- two of which included San Jose -- so not much to get excited about.

For Sounders FC fans, Seattle's wildcard hopes were significantly boosted thanks to a tie by Toronto FC and a loss by New England.

I'll post a little playoff glance, courtesy of The Soccer Insider, after the results:
