The Seattle Sounders signing of Clint Dempsey is trending more highly on the Seattle Times than news regarding star baseballer Alex Rodriguez.

The Sounders pulled off a major coup by luring USA star Dempsey from Tottenham on the weekend with two of the top five articles on the Times website featuring the transfer.

The fact that two stories on the Dempsey move outweigh a story on New York Yankees star A-Rod, formerly of the Seattle Mariners, shows just how big a deal the MLS is with the general Seattle public.
