  Just to bring the readers up to date on the MLL playoff situation, it's fairly simple at this point:   The Launch are locked in to the 3rd slot and will travel to either Denver or Ohio.  Denver lost last night in Chesapeake so if Ohio wins the Launch will go to Denver.  If Rochester defeats Ohio at home the Launch will travel to Ohio. Rochester needs to win to make the playoffs, so Ohio will have their hands full. If Rochester loses it simply comes down to the Charlotte road trip to NY.  The winner of that game finishes fourth if Rochester loses.   Frankly, as a Launch rooter I would think it would be better to travel to Denver as they struggled a little more down the stretch and last night's defensive effort was not good, nor was Denver's clearing gam...

  As we head into the final two weekends of the regular season it looks like quite the horse race for a couple of slots.  Interestingly enough, the Launch are the most likely to be locked into their slot, assuming they take care of business in Boston on Saturday.  After last night's gutted out win by Ohio in Denver the two teams are tied for the top spot and barring any really ridiculous hiccups and permutations they will occupy the 1st and 2nd seeds and will host home playoff games in the semifinals, with the Launch likely to travel to one of them. Here are the standings as of today and the games remaining:   MLL Standings Team   W-L To Go Denver 8-4 2 Ohio 8-4 2 Florida 7-6 1 Rochester ...
