FORT MYERS, Fla. — Sports Illustrated's baseball preview picks the Red Sox to win 100 games and the World Series.
SI has the Sox topping the Yankees by eight games then beating the Athletics, Twins and Giants in the playoffs.
That all sounds reasonable. I think 100 wins is a bit high given the quality of the East. Tampa Bay will be better than many people think and the Orioles are not the walkovers they once were, Toronto is tough and obviously the Yankees have a strong team.
I like the Sox with 95 wins and the division title.
