It didn’t take long for Dave Dombrowski to find a new job, it had been rumored that he was heading to Toronto but in a stunning move he is heading to Boston where he is reunited with his old boss  Red Sox Owner John Henry. They were together in Miami with the Marlins.

“I want to thank John and Tom for this opportunity. Although I did have other potential options within baseball, there was no option that stood out as clearly as the chance to come to Boston and win with the Red Sox. Boston is a baseball city like no other and its history and traditions are unique in our game. I expressed to John and Tom that Boston would be my absolute top choice and am honored to have the chance to serve Red Sox Nation.”

The move doesn’t come without some discomfort as  Ben Cherington, Boston’s GM since October 2011, has stepped down but according to the Red Sox, will assist Dombrowski as he transitions into the role. With this move it is apparent Boston is changing it’s philosophy and looking to change it’s fortunes that has befell the franchise in recent years. So the goal for Dombrowski is clear…to return the RedSox back to being perennial championship contender status again. The feeling here based on his past resume with the Tigers it won’t take long for that to happen.
