Red Sox fire team president Dombrowski

Red Sox fire team president Dombrowski

Red Sox spokesman Kevin Gregg said Boston's assistant general managers would share Dombrowski's duties for the final few weeks of the season.

It has been a weird title defense season for the Red Sox. For the Yankees, New York will have James Paxton who has been largely stellar since his return to form following issues with his injured knee.

Dombrowski, with the Red Sox since 2015, had increasingly been at odds with ownership as the team this year has fallen to a third-place standing in the American League East Division with a return to the playoffs this year highly unlikely.

Where: Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts. 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. We'll talk a little bit more tomorrow. It's just embarrassing enough that they had to do it at midnight on a Sunday during the season, and never bother to explain it publicly.

Right-hander Rick Porcello's career has been tied to Dombrowski's as much as any player.

"Sure, some of the things they did didn't work, but they went to the World Series past year".

Porcello, who took the loss against the Yankees on Sunday, and his teammates learned of the move as the game ended.

The former Detroit Tigers President and General Manager was sacked early Monday morning, less than a year after winning the World Series with the Red Sox.

What have you done for me lately? 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. No other team officials were made available to the media. When introduced by the public-address announcer, Dombrowski waved his right arm slightly.
