Who In The Hell Is "Dayn Perry"?

Ignore for the moment the stupid way in which he spells his name, or the goofy "I'm in waaay over my head" look on his face:

... and just look at his asinine ""Power Rankings."

1 Red Sox - - 1/1 The Red Sox have done a solid-to-admirable job of filling their holes at third, first, shortstop, and in center. The relief corps has been impressively revamped, and the rotation has imposing depth. To boot, Theo Epstein’s back in the fold. Much depends on the health of guys like Curt Schilling, Josh Beckett, David Wells and Keith Foulke, but as things stand now the Red Sox are tops in baseball.

Bolding mine. For the record, this is who they added at third and first:
 Year Ag Tm  Lg  G   AB    R    H   2B 3B  HR  RBI  SB CS  BB  SO   BA   OBP   SLG   TB   SH  SF IBB HBP GDP
2005 31 FLA NL 150 500 56 118 36 1 8 58 4 0 46 58 .236 .298 .360 180 1 9 1 2 14

J.T. SNOW, OPS+ 88:
 Year Ag Tm  Lg  G   AB    R    H   2B 3B  HR  RBI  SB CS  BB  SO   BA   OBP   SLG   TB   SH  SF IBB HBP GDP
2005 37 SFG NL 117 367 40 101 17 2 4 40 1 0 32 61 .275 .343 .365 134 2 2 1 7 6

Bill Mueller, last year's primary third baseman, had an OPS+ of 122.
Kevin Millar, last year's primary first baseman, has an OPS+ of 100.

I'm not sure Dayn Perry knows what "admirable" means.

Great job on upgrading your corner infield, Red Sox! You're obviously the favorites over the #2 White Sox (didn't they improve at a couple of key positions?) and the #3 Yankees (who obviously must "suck wicked hahd," according to Perry).

Also, his gripe about the Yankees is that they "overpaid" for Damon, because how much you pay for a player directly impacts the success on the field of a particular team.

As if we weren't clear on his loyalties, he ranks Boston's bullpen well above the Yankees'.

Maybe he's just a Julian Tavarez fan.

Luckily for Perry, if things so south at FOX I'm sure ESPN will be waiting with a job offer.
