MLS Standings 2012: Revolution destined for ninth

Nothing can really change for the New England Revolution in the MLS standings with just a pair of games left in the season: they'll finish the year in ninth place.

It will be the second year the Revolution are the ninth best team in the Eastern Conference, although it's a little bit better this year, as there are now ten teams in the conference. With two games on the schedule, seven points separate New England and the team they just lost to, the Philadelphia Union, and seven points separate them from the last-place team, Toronto FC. The Revolution has 29 points thus far with games against Chicago and Montreal still on the docket.

There's still a battle for the fifth and final playoff spot in the conference: Columbus is currently the odd team out with 49 points, with D.C., New York, and Houston all within striking range. Columbus can help themselves out with a matchup against D.C. next Saturday, with a win having the potential to bring them within two points of the team currently in third place.
