Like N4N, three of four Boston Globe sportswriters are picking the Sox to win the AL East (and the whole enchilada, as well). Only Dan Shaughnessy thinks otherwise, ticketing the Blue Jays (???) to upset the NY-Boston hegemony.
Meanwhile, Major League Baseball has again ruled that Johnny Pesky, due to the number of coaches, can't sit in the Sox dugout during games. I know this is based on a rule, but it still seems wrong and mean-spirited. Pesky, 87, lost his wife last year. He is Mr. Red Sox. As someone who has had the privilege of interviewing him, I can tell you that he is a consummate gentleman.
He should be in the dugout.
