Boston Red Sox fire Dave Dombrowksi

This might come as a bit of a surprise.

The Boston Red Sox have decided to go in a different direction. They fired president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski after a 10-5 loss to the New York Yankees on Sunday.

While Dombrowski was the president of baseball operations in Boston, the team won the AL East division three times and brought home a World Series title last fall.

The Red Sox are 76-67 and 17.5 games behind the Yankees for the division lead.
