Predictions And Projections III

The Providence Journal's Steve Krasner's 2007 predictions:
East: Boston, New York, Toronto, Tampa Bay, Baltimore
Other divisions: Cleveland, Oakland, Philadelphia, Cubs, Dodgers
Wild Cards: Yankees, Mets
World Series: Red Sox over Mets
MVP: Ortiz and Soriano
CY: "Roger Clemens, Boston", Zito
Ian Browne,, from a few days ago:
If you would have asked me yesterday who my favorite was to win the American League East, I would have said the Yankees. Today [Papelbon named as closer], I'd say the Red Sox, because they have eliminated what was far and away, their biggest question mark. Then again, the margin is not very big. I predict that the difference in the AL East this year is two games, maximum. It's going to be wild.
From the Boston Globe:
          Sox   NYY   WS
Edes: East WC Red Sox over Dodgers
Benjamin: East 2nd Red Sox over Dodgers
Ryan: East WC Red Sox over Mets
CHB: WC 3rd Tigers over Dodgers
As you can probably tell, the Curly One believes Toronto will top the East. Not even Richard Griffin at the Toronto Star was that bold (or whatever word you want you use); he went with a repeat of last year's standings.
