After noting the preseason baseball predictions of the Boston Globe, Sports Illustrated, and Street & Smith's, we would be remiss not to mention a few more.
Writing in Sunday's ProJo, Joe McDonald, Steve Krasner, and Sean McAdam each pick the Sox to take the AL East.

In the blogosphere, Rhode Island's Future's Matt sees 96 wins in the Sox' future, and Anchor Rising's Andrew has a quip about the Globe's Dan Shaughnessy.
