Red Sox fire president of baseball operations

MLB Spring Training Boston Red Sox at Pittsburgh Pirates

Red Sox majority owner John Henry released a statement thanking Dombrowski for his time.

The Red Sox and president of baseball operations parted ways shortly after Boston dropped its Sunday night game against the New York Yankees, 10-5.

According to the report in the Post, long-time Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy had recently wrote columns predicting Dombrowski would be held responsible for the Red Sox's fall from grace. The team rebounded from their poor start but never really got hot, enduring spits and starts en route to what appears to be their first season without the playoffs since a last-place finish in 2015.

Reports of Vaping Related Illnesses Rise in North Texas
Other reports suggest that there are 450 cases across 33 states and one USA territory, including 41 cases in the state of NY . USA public health officials are investigating 450 cases of vaping-related lung illness across 33 states and one US territory.

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. The trio had been assistant general managers under Dombrowski.

"Surprised. I'm shocked, honestly", Cora said Sunday night after hearing about the front-office shakeup. But, he gave me a chance to come here and be a big league manager. "It's one of those things that caught me. It's one of those that they just told me so, I'm not ready to talk about it".

Even though rumors have been swirling that a change at the top may be coming due to a poor showing in 2019, this move is nevertheless shocking for an organization that was still on top of the baseball world. He traded for Chris Sale and Craig Kimbrel and signed J.D. Martinez and David Price. Dombrowski led the Red Sox to a historic 108-win season and a World Series title in 2018, so he'll likely have plenty of opportunities going forward.

According to Passan, the team plans have a group of executives, assistant general managers Eddie Romero, Brian O'Halloran and Zack Scott, lead its baseball-operations department.
