I think Mathematically there is somehow still a chance, but certainly no scenario where they have control over their own fate. Fiasco is right. Changing their playoff entry to a PPG standing rather than outright points is as Mickey Mouse as it gets. Especially during this pandemic, when all squads have had to plan their every movements around it, it's a joke to essentially reward squads that did the poorest job at risk management on their own end. The Canadian teams are really being jobbed this year. Spending weeks away from home, long stretches of quarantine breaks, and most infuriating are recent decisions to eliminate the Supporter's Shield (a giant fcuk you to every other league on the planet, and supporters, that gives top of the table standings as Championship status), and this PPG qualification bullshit. Squads play all season with laser focus on the points earned. It is not Vancouver's fault Colorado can't manager their players and obviously don't have good pandemic protocol.

With the league making up new rules as the season progresses, perhaps the Caps are thinking at some point, playoffs will be determined by $ spent per point earned. Caps would be #1 seed AND collect their first hardware in the Supporters Shield, no?

This is gross sarcasm that doesn't seem way far off possibility. The MLS is a joke of a league the way they run things, the Caps are a joke of a franchise the way they (don't) spend.

So obviously San Jose got a win that killed off our season. The boys did manage to end off the year by beating the woeful Galaxy. Montero with the brace and Cava added one.

The Caps were bad this season but how bad were they? They played away from home for weeks. Played a number of the top teams twice including TFC, Portland, Seattle and LAFC. I would go out on the limb and say we'd make the playoffs in a regular year. Cava, Montero, Godoy didn't play in the MLS is Back tourney and it took them a few games to get in to gear. Things were slowly starting to click. Dajome works hard and is a willing runner, I like how his progressing. RT was good enough. Bikel showed promise in the holding role. Baldi showed creativity although his fitness and defensive awareness is shocking. Nerwiniski was actually decent although his defensive ariel game is weak. Cornerlius had a shocker for me, he can play much better. Milinkovic looked good here and there but way to inconsistent. Khimiri is garbage. Bair isn't at the level. Raposo showing the jump from college to the pros is massive. Bush is quality but his wages are a tad outrages. Owusu surprised me and got better as the season progressed.

The caps should do something crazy like sign Balotelli. :D
Cava and Balotelli upfront with Montero playing as the 10.
