Dayn Perry Is An Asshole

I'm still on vacation, but I couldn't pass this up. Baseball Prospectus contributor Dayn Perry, doubtless up against a deadline and with nothing to write about, took the coward's way out and posted a list of his wishes for the new year.
37. That things in D.C., generally speaking, go horribly wrong for the Nationals.
Charming. My new year's wish is that Dayn figures out how to spell his first name and gets fired. Here's a link where you can inform Da"y"n just what you think of his lovely sentiment.

The ironic thing about this is that Perry wrote a fairly balanced and researched piece on the DC effort a few years back, and seemed to be positive about the whole idea of baseball's return.

I think what we are seeing now among these geeks is an almost politically correct animosity towards all things DC: the Mayor, the stadium deal, Bush, the fan base, etc.

They've got the next thirty years to get over it.

I'm also seeing a lot of this anti-DC feeling at Baseball Think Factory. I wish all these smug Red Sox, Yankees and Cubs fans could experience a third of a century of silent summers -- then let's see how they feel.

To be honest, I've been fed up enough with the anti-DC crap from BP that I don't think I'm going to renew my subscription when it expires sometime this winter.

BTF and BP have been just awful all through this process. I'm thinking along the same lines as you are, Yuda, but I don't know if I can give BP up. Chris Kahrl's a fan, at least. It's unfortunately sabermetric dogma now that DC baseball should fail just to make Bud Selig look bad, fans be damned.

I got email back today from Jonah Keri saying that he's sure Dayn doesn't wish any ill will towards the fans.

I'm not sure I agree, but the ironic thing is Jonah, being an Expos fan, is just about the only guy at BP who really has a reason to be bitter about this whole thing -- and he's been the most professional of all of them.

Gee, that's real nice of Dayn. That's like me saying I killed your dog because it peed on my lawn, but I certainly didn't want you to get upset.

Yuda said...

That was you who killed my dog?


Ryan said...

Hey, it peed on my lawn. Priorities, man!
