Boston – The Boston Red Sox have severed their relationship with their president of baseball operations, Dave Dombrowski, less than a year after winning the World Series.
Boston Red Sox spokesman Kevin Gregg announced the decision Sunday night after a 10-5 loss to the New York Yankees, who left the title defenders 17 and a half games behind their old rivals East of the American League.
Boston, which had won three straight division titles, would be eliminated from the fight for that title if it lost Monday in the last game of the series.
Dombrowski, a veteran baseball manager who built a World Series champion team in Miami and helped the Tigers win two American League titles, was recruited to run operations in Boston in 2015, after the team finished last of the table, mark that repeated to the following course.
After that year, the Red Sox achieved three titles in a row from the Eastern American League, something unheard of in the franchise.
But this year, with practically the same squad as the previous one, the Red Sox are 76-67, lost five of their first six games and never came to compete for the division title.
The assistant general directors of Boston will share Dombrowski's work in the last weeks of the season, Gregg said.
