In MLS, the 100-goal club is elite territory.
Only seven players can claim a spot in that club, with Landon Donovan joining it with his 100th goal, a penalty kick against the Chicago Fire on Sunday evening.
Now, the race to become the next 100-goal score is one led by Donovan's current teammate Edson Buddle. At 85 goals, Buddle should eclipse the mark within at year or two if he can maintain the prolific scoring rate he's set in the past few seasons.
Buddle's closest competition among current MLS players are Brian McBride at 78, and Josh Wolff at 74, but given their age and current scoring rate, are outsiders to reach that landmark. Brian Ching and Dwayne De Rosario hover at 68 and 70 respectively, and would need Buddle to slip up to get there first.
