This offseason hasn't been the most exciting time to be a fan of the Boston Red Sox. The team hasn't done much in terms of improving the roster. Fans are getting restless, and that's fair. Boston hasn't been good the last few seasons, and Red Sox fans expect greatness.

To be fair, most of the big-name free agents are still on the market, and plenty of teams haven't moved the needle. With Yoshinobu Yamamoto signing with the Los Angeles Dodgers, maybe other players will start to sign. However, that still doesn't make things fun for Red Sox fans to this point.

So, let's fast-forward to the 2024 season. The minor leagues tend to have storylines flowing through them at all times. Prospects are struggling or becoming breakout candidates. We'll see veterans rehabbing, players chasing records, and incredible runs.
