Rapids Try To Short Dynamo

Electricity + Water = Trouble

After what seems like a long stretch on the road but was only a couple of games the Rapids host Houston tomorrow night.  The Dynamo still cling to playoff hopes though a loss in Commerce City tomorrow night would erase most of them.  Game time tomorrow is 7pm so the tailgate starts at 4, or whenever people get there after work. ;)  'Celo and Fleming will have the call on Altitude.

Injury Report:
OUT: D Jared Watts; F Luis Solignac (hamstring)
QUESTIONABLE: D Joseph Greenspan (back); D James Riley (concussion); M Lucas Pittinari (hamstring)

ONE YELLOW FROM SUSPENSION: D Bobby Burling (2 games left for good behavior reduction); D Axel Sjoberg (3 games left for good behavior reduction); D Drew Moor (3 games left for good behavior reduction); D Jared Watts; M Lucas Pittinari (3 games left for good behavior reduction)

Houston has 5 players questionable or worse, including DaMarcus Beasley  Its always ahrd to predict a lineup for the 2nd game of a 3 game week but here's my attempt: 

But really there's any number of players who can start.

Strategic Consideration: Try to have more than 2 shots on target.  Lets try for our high for the month and get 6!

Prediction: 1-1 draw, goal by Sanchez.  Hard to predict a win at this point but I'm feeling positive about getting something out of this match.
