As per the latest tweet by Jeff Passan, the Red Sox have parted ways with Dave Dombrowski, the President of Baseball Operations. The Assistant General Manager Eddie Romero will act as his substitute.
In August of 2015, Boston conferred Dombrowski the title of the head of baseball operations. Among some of his game-changing moves, the signing of David Price and J.D. Martinez are unparalleled, along with the trading for Chris Sale. However, in less than a season after the Red Sox emerged as the champions of the World Series, Dombrowski saw the end of things in Boston.
Dombrowski mentioned the fact that he was on the “hot seat” weeks ago. Here he was reported as stating about the three divisional championships and title of the World Series that the Red Sox have been successful in seizing since he assumed his duties of the front office. These are some of the reasons that he gave regarding why he shouldn’t fret much about his job security.
In the recent season of 2019, we have seen that the Red Sox had gone through utter misery and disappointment. Though it is believed that their lineup is one of the best in baseball, with people around the world, attributing their excellent team to their incredible production in their last season. However, the pitching staff has not been as consistent this time, thereby, leading to the appalling performance.
Considering the amount of resources Dombrowski incorporated into the team and the proper management, into the starting rotation and the bullpen, their shortcomings are not very much pleasing for the Baseball boss Dombrowski and his tenure in Boston.
After the Red Socks suffered a 10-5 loss to New York Yankees which dropped the defending champions 17½ games behind their longtime Al East rivals, Red Socks manager Alex Cora was extremely shocked and found dumbstruck. Dombrowski was the person who gave a chance to Alex to be a big-league manager, recalled Alex Cora.
