Dave Dombrowski fired by Boston Red Sox

Dave Dombrowski

On Sunday, the Boston Red Sox fired president Dave Dombrowski less than a full year after winning the World Series. "But a general manager, a president of baseball operations doesn't make that decision without doctors saying that it's okay to do it". "With a World Series championship and three consecutive AL East titles, he has cemented what was already a Hall of Fame career".

Less than two years after that title, Cherington was ousted in favor of Dave Dombrowski, who had a longtime relationship with owner John Henry.

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.

Assistant general manager Eddie Romero, along with a group of executives including Brian O'Halloran and Zack Scott, will now head the team's baseball operations as the team "immeditately" begins its search for the next head of baseball operations.

"Surprised. I'm shocked, honestly", Cora said Sunday night after hearing about the front-office shakeup.

Dombrowski, who was hired in 2015, had a contract that ran through 2020, according to Passan. But, he gave me a chance to come here and be a big league manager. "It's one of those things that caught me". "Growing up in this game, I was always told there are three markets that are different than everywhere else: Boston, New York and Philadelphia". Price re-upped with the team after the World Series and the trio combined will cost Boston almost $80 million per season the next three years.

Dombrowski's moves to obtain veteran talent in pursuit of the World Series title won previous year have also come at a price beyond money, as the Red Sox' farm system is now widely ranked as one of the worst in the league. He traded for Chris Sale and Craig Kimbrel and signed J.D. Martinez and David Price.
