Red Sox fire Dombrowski one year after winning World Series

Red Sox part ways with baseball boss Dave Dombrowski | The Kansas City Star

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.

Apparently not much if you're Dave Dombrowski, the Red Sox's now former president of baseball operations. If the Yankees beat the Red Sox again on Monday, they will officially eliminate Boston from AL East title contention.

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. He traded for Chris Sale and Craig Kimbrel and signed J.D. Martinez and David Price. The Red Sox now have one of the worst minor league systems in baseball, making it hard for the team to trade for veterans or bring up major league talent throughout the course of the regular season.

"Appreciative of my time here", Dombrowski said. "We were extraordinarily fortunate to be able to bring Dave in to lead baseball operations". Dombrowski had seen his teams win at least 93 games in each of his three full seasons on the job. We'll talk about it tomorrow. Despite bringing back a championship-caliber roster, Boston is now 76-67 and sits 17.5 games behind the Yankees for first place in the AL East. Dombrowski was the general manager of the Detroit Tigers when they drafted Porcello in the first round (27th overall pick) in 2007. 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. Could this be a signal the Red Sox would trade him for prospects?

He was also the one who hired Red Sox manager Alex Cora right before the 2018 season.
