March's ASN 100 is here with Michael Bradley barely edging out Clint Dempsey for the top spot. But who cares about that, you know? Let's talk about the guys who just missed.

New England Revolution center back A.J. Soares is the odd man out this month, checking in at 101. With MLS back in action, you have to wonder if he'll move up next month, assuming some strong play. Same goes for Bobby Convey, Chris Wingert, Luis Silva, Bobby Convey, and Dilly Duka, all perpetual 101-110 candidates.

Robbie Rogers plummeted down the list, not surprising considering he stepped away from the game, possibly permanently. But it's good to see the ASN panelists keeping him in mind. If Rogers returned to MLS, it's not hard to see him back in the top 100 pretty quickly.

I'm a bit surprised Sebastian Lletget hasn't cracked the 100. The 20 year old is getting closer and closer at West Ham and recently signed a new deal. I suspect he'll make an appearance in the list sooner rather than later.

As for the rest of the 101-110, here you go:

101. A.J. Soares
102. Omar Salgado
103. Robbie Rogers
104. Sebastian Lletget
105. Chris Wingert
106. Will Packwood
107. Luis Silva
108. Bobby Convey
109. Frank Simek
110. Dilly Duka
