Orlando (1) has already agreed to build a new downtown stadium to house a new Florida MLS team that will join the league in 2015 along with a second team in New York City (2), while Houston's MLS franchise moved into a brand-new stadium built downtown in 2012. British soccer star David Beckham is now drumming up support for a new franchise in Miami (3).
The author thinks that the second team in NYC is part of the 4 new franchises and that Atlanta is getting the fourth and final spot.

The NYC team will become the 20th MLS franchise; this news came out a long time ago. After that announcement MLS said that they would expand to 24 teams.

Orlando, Miami, and Atlanta have basically been locks for a long time. MLS has really wanted to break into the Southeast. The competition is for that 4th and final spot.

Cities competing for final spot:
- Minneapolis
- Sacramento
- San Antonio
- Austin
- St. Louis
- San Diego

Thanks for the link though, I needed a good laugh.
