In a week where the Los Angeles Galaxy and Houston Dynamo posted impressive victories, the Western Conference powers accounted for nearly half of this week's SBI MLS Best XI.
Edson Buddle and Juan Pablo Angel are familiar names on the Best XI, but Houston forward Dominic Oduro joined that elite group after his stellar performance in leading the Dynamo to a 3-0 humbling of Kansas City. Dynamo teammate Brian Mullan was also part of the action, and part of this week's squad.
The Galaxy led the way with three Best XI selections, with Buddle and Landon Donovan joined by first-time selection A.J. DeLaGarza.
One of the toughest calls was in goal, where Joe Cannon and Wil Hesmer were both deserving, but New England goalkeeper Preston Burpo stepped up to help his team salvage a point despite finishing down two men against FC Dallas.
Here is this week's SBI MLS Best XI
