Dayn Perry: Boston the model baseball franchise

In yet another brilliant piece by Fox Sports' Dayn Perry, he labels the Red Sux MLB's model franchise.

"However, from top to bottom there's no organization that's as smart, efficient, dedicated and forward-thinking as the Red Sox. This season, they're on pace for 97 wins, they've clinched their 10th straight winning campaign, and they're also the odds-on favorites to win their second World Series in the last four seasons."

I was not aware that spending money like drunken sailors made you a model franchise.  Especially when your answer to past mistakes is to simply just throw more money at it.

I think the SS situation sums up their efficiency perfectly.  Renteria?  Lugo?

Dice K looks to be worth 100+ mil.

Basically the Red sux have turned into Yankee Jr., except the Yankees themselves have reformed their ways over the last couple of years.  My favorite Red Sux moment was at the 2006 trading deadline when the Yanks got Abreu and Lidle.  Henry went on TV and said that the Red Sox could not compete with Yankees in baseball's economic climate of today, only to turn aound and outspend the league the following offseason.  Way to cry poverty.

Forward thinking?  JD Drew 70 mil over 5. I rest my case.
