Ben Cherington is out. Dave Dombrowski is in. While the man who brought the Detroit Tigers from obscurity to perennial dominance is not going to be the general manager of the Boston Red Sox, he is going to run the show. You can mark that down right now.
This is something that should excite Red Sox fans everywhere. Dombrowski is a winner. Cherington was able to help put things in place to get the Red Sox a World Series championship in 2013 but, he is also at the helm during the other two seasons that saw them finish in last place, as well as this current season, which also finds them in last place with six or seven weeks remaining.
