The Boston Red Sox are living up to expectations right now at the big league level. They don't have many glaring holes, though a fractured vertebrae could end Clay Buchholz's season.
The Red Sox were able to get Erik Bedard at the trade deadline without giving up their top prospects, maintaining a strong core of players to take over for the aging major league squad.
Boston's farm system doesn't have a Chris Sale or Aroldis Chapman, a flashy, immediate impact, "bring people to the ballpark" type prospect. But they have some very talented youngsters working their way up.
