The Boston Red Sox have turned some pages in the wake of the recent transactions made by the franchise up to, and including, the 2014 MLB trade deadline.

Speculation has surrounded Boston regarding what the team will do after sending away a sizable portion of its roster—much of which was carried over from the Red Sox's championship team a season ago.

With these departures and some new additions, the Red Sox have indeed changed the direction in which the team is heading. There have been some major league-ready upgrades, but we should look to the younger players when determining how Boston will look next season and beyond.

Prospects are the name of the game for the Red Sox. Many of these players figure to be critical components for Boston in coming years.

Fortunately, the Red Sox have a deep and talented pool from which to choose. Had Boston's minor league system been relatively thin, the future of this franchise could easily be viewed as grim when considering the inevitable outcome of the 2014 season.
