Beantown debacle: Flailing Red Sox fire prez of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski

Dombrowski, the team's President of Baseball Operations, helped build a team that won 108 games and the World Series just 11 months ago. From the start of Dombrowski's tenure on August 18, 2015, through the beginning of this season, the Red Sox had posted a major-league best 320-210 (.604) record.

The Red Sox have no plans to formally discuss the firing of Dave Dombrowski, who was dismissed shortly before midnight Sunday into Monday.

The club's baseball operations in the interim will be led collectively by assistant general managers Eddie Romero, Brian O'Halloran, and Zack Scott.

Dombrowski landed numerous big names during his relatively short stint as president, bringing in players such as Chris Sale, Craig Kimbrel, J.D. Martinez and David Price. "In addition, Senior Vice President of Major and Minor League Operations Raquel Ferreira will take on an expanded role within the transition team", the Red Sox said. We'll talk about it tomorrow. The Red Sox capped the season by beating the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games to win the World Series. Maybe Red Sox owner John Henry was simply ready to move on, going into what will be an extremely busy and potentially pivotal winter of work for the franchise, and wanted to give himself the best chance to identify a permanent replacement as soon as possible. "It's one of those things that caught me". The team won the AL East in all three of his seasons but fell to 76-67 after a loss to the Yankees on Sunday night. Because Betts is projected to fetch more than $25 million in his final season of arbitration, many team observers expect the Red Sox to trade him in an effort to restock a farm system depleted by the go-for-broke mantra Dombrowski followed for several seasons. Once the offseason starts, the Red Sox will hire someone permanently and Ferreira will go back to her job as one of the most powerful women in all of baseball.
