    What the ****

    So 3 division titles in a row and a World Series and it just takes one year of some unpredictably underperforming/injured starting pitchers to finish in third and you ****ing fire the guy?

    The Red Sox used to be a classy operation - Pulling a Midnight firing when all the sports media is in Foxborough is something George Steinerbrenner would do.....

    He did his job.

    They fired Claude during the Pats parade.

    This move was predictable. Maybe now we can fix the farm system.

    The Bruins at least had a rational explanation on the timing even if nobody bought it.

    The craziest part is that both parties probably made/are making the right decision....I just don’t understand why both of them felt the need to hide it

    Somebody had to be the fall guy. Winning title less than a year ago definitely doesnt get you much job security these days in baseball compared to other sports. Midnight firing and thats that

    Do you think this decision came from Gordon and Werner or Henry and Linda. John Henry has known Dave Dombrowski since his marlins days.

    There is a lot of infighting on Yawkey Way with the owners - one huge issue is NESN.

    It sucks the way they did it, but I've never particularly liked Dombrowski's approach, so I think it's the right decision to remove him at this point. He overpays in trades, his solution to most problems is thrown money at it, and he has a bad history of straight up ignoring the bullpen. He's good at doing whatever it takes to build a championship team, but you don't want him in charge long term.

    Eddie Romero's been with the organization for a long time, and is highly regarded throughout the league. They need to do a rebuild/reload, and I think they're going to go back to more of a Theo Epstein-like approach. Biggest thing right now is finding a way to sign Betts, and then they need to figure out what to do about the pitching.

    They had 2 pretty good drafts

    Eddie Romero Jr is a draft development guy - scouting background; people skills

    If it’s him I’m all in

    Dombrowski did two significant moves

    Kept Devers out of Sale deal

    Signed Bogearts

    My ‘Cabin in the Woods’ script

    Name Romero who will sign Betts

    Going to happen

    BUT the Red Sox are sending hints Romero is not going to be the top dog

    Assistant general managers Brian O’Halloran, Eddie Romero and Zack Scott will run the baseball operations department until a new general manager or president of baseball operations is named.

    Betts seems like he does not want to be in Boston they could raid a farm system like the braves or Dodgers for pitchers if they trade him.

    Bogearts also

    Been reading for a year he wanted out and with Scott Boras his agent he’s gone

    Seems isn’t reality

    Michael Gordon is the unknown - He owns more of the team than Werner does.

    Is it up to the 6 Jacobs siblings to agree with the redsox on a sale of NESN now or does papa Jacobs still have the first right of refusal?
