EDITORS NOTE: Many people have asked me why Jeff Parke is on this list since he has just been banned long term for using Performance Enhancing Drugs. Well, he was on the list before that news hit, and there was a debate as to whether or not he should stay on the list. Yes won out. Maybe that's the wrong call, but it's the way it's going to stay. Your opinion on the matter is appreciated.

I assume Parke is on that list as a joke. Or as a commercial spokesman for a nationwide vitamin chain.

San Jose: Cochrane doesn't belong at all. Lima's first name is Francisco. Joe Cannon should be on there. My vote is for O'Brien or Cannon ... a full season of Huckerby would have beaten them both. Not sure any of them belong on an MLS Best 11, although again, a full year of Hucks might make it.

I don't see how you can leave Davy Arnaud and/or Jack Jewsbury off the KC list. That central midfield pairing is the reason for the Wizards late season success.

As for DC, I would pull Crayton. The man rocks, but he's been up and down. I would would Simms in his place. Simms has played almost every minute of every league game. He's been more consistent and reliable than any other United player this year. Plus, he has scored two amazing goals and has had a couple of assists.

Just to add onto what I was saying about Simms. He's actually played 2607 minutes this season, out of a possible 2610. Definitely an mvp!
