Less than a year after winning the 2018 World Series, the Red Sox fired president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski following their 10-5 loss to the Yankees Sunday night, reports ESPN's Jeff Passan.
Boston Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski speaks with members of the media before the start of the spring training game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at LECOM Park. During this process, the baseball operations department will be led by Assistant General Managers Brian O'Halloran, Eddie Romero and Zack Scott. He traded for Chris Sale and Craig Kimbrel and signed J.D. Martinez and David Price. The Red Sox went 93-69 and won the American League East.More news: Israel strikes Hamas terror targets in response to attacks from Gaza
The team officially announced Dombrowski's departure in a statement Monday morning, and said they do not plan to hold a press conference on the matter. "We were extraordinarily fortunate to be able to bring Dave in to lead baseball operations".
Still, the move to dismiss Dombrowski after winning three straight division titles, a league championship, and posting a franchise-record 108 regular season wins previous year represents a rapid turn of events.More news: What Did Meghan Markle Do on Her New York Visit?
More monumental changes could be in store for the Red Sox from top to bottom. But, he gave me a chance to come here and be a big league manager. The Red Sox followed with three straight AL East titles - a first in franchise history - and won a club-record 108 games last season en route to their fourth World Series championship since 2004. "They just told me, so I'm not ready to talk about it".
Dombrowski was hired by Boston in August 2015 after he was released by the Detroit Tigers. Could this be a signal the Red Sox would trade him for prospects? Until new hires can be made, the Red Sox will now be run by a committee containing, among others, three male assistant general managers, and, for the first time ever, a woman.More news: Iran's Full and Timely Cooperation is Essential, Acting Director General Tells Board
