MLSSoccer.com says Blas Perez best No. 9 in league

By Mark Norris

Blas Perez is the best in the game at what he does - excelling as a traditional No. 9 on the pitch. So says the folks at MLSSoccer.com who ranked the top "traditional strikers" currently in the league. Read the whole story, but here's an excerpt on Blas:

The winner: FC Dallas big man Blas Pérez. There was no mystery surrounding the Panamanian international when he came to MLS last summer, and he’s made good on FCD’s investment. He scored nine goals and added four assists in 20 games last year on a Dallas team that never really found its rhythm, and there’s no reason to think that he won’t be just as effective this year with a fully healthy David Ferreira pulling the strings.
