- One week ago, the Red Sox were part of one of the biggest trades in baseball history. While most of the focus has been on the talent leaving Boston, our job is to focus on the talent coming back. SoxProspects Executive Editor Chris Hatfield examined the haul from the Dodgers, and Director of Scouting Chris Mellen wrote a detailed report on Allen Webster's (pictured) first start in the organization. Webster is the top-rated prospect received in the deal, debuting at fourth on the SoxProspects rankings.
