Dave Dombrowski Fired By Boston Red Sox

Dombrowski's contract ran through the 2020 season.

The Red Sox, who have won four championships in the last 15 years, lost to the Yankees for the 13th time in 18 meetings this season, and they're in third place in the American League East, 17 1/2 games behind NY despite their 76-67 record.

The 2018 Red Sox won their division for the third straight season, with last year's championship team setting a franchise record with 108 wins.

Still, the move to dismiss Dombrowski after winning three straight division titles, a league championship, and posting a franchise-record 108 regular season wins a year ago represents a rapid turn of events. But this year's team - with largely the same roster as last year's - has gone 76-67, losing five of their first six games and never really getting back into contention.

The Red Sox, despite their veteran stars, are now eight games out of a wild card position. "Growing up in this game, I was always told there are three markets that are different than everywhere else: Boston, New York and Philadelphia". We'll talk a little bit more tomorrow.

Iran moves towards enriching uranium with advanced centrifuges -IAEA
The IAEA has asked Iran to explain the traces, but so far Tehran has not done so, according to the report. Mandelker then noted that Iranian oil sales have taken a "serious nose dive" because of USA pressure.

"This is a guy that gave me a chance to come here and be a big league manager", Alex Cora said Sunday night.

Boston originally hired Dombrowski back in 2015. Could this be a signal the Red Sox would trade him for prospects?

"My goal, when you are facing our offense, I want you to feel it". And unfortunately that's the case right here. Until new hires can be made, the Red Sox will now be run by a committee containing, among others, three male assistant general managers, and, for the first time ever, a woman.

"You take lots of guilt with you as a player because you're the one that can make or break things and that's the part that hurts me". A statement emailed to reporters later Monday quoted the team's top brass but said there would be "no formal media availability" to discuss the move less than a year after the team won the World Series.
