The Red Sox are now eight games back of Oakland for the second AL Wild Card spot; with 18 games left to play in their season - and the organization also dismissed General Manager Dave Dombrowski following Sunday's loss.

With the news coming out on Monday morning that the Boston Red Sox fired their president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski on Sunday, fans are wondering where do they go from here?

As of now, senior vice president Raquel Ferreira and assistant general managers Eddie Romero, Brian O'Halloran and Zack Scott will jointly lead their baseball operations department for the rest of the season according to ESPN.

Dombrowski landed numerous big names during his relatively short stint as president, bringing in players such as Chris Sale, Craig Kimbrel, J.D. Martinez and David Price. The Red Sox now have one of the worst minor league systems in baseball, making it hard for the team to trade for veterans or bring up major league talent throughout the course of the regular season. The Red Sox have parted ways with Dombrowski. Price re-upped with the team after the World Series and the trio combined will cost Boston almost $80 million per season the next three years.

"Dave will hold a special place in franchise history as a key architect of one of the greatest Red Sox teams ever assembled", said Werner.

The Red Sox, who have won four championships in the last 15 years, lost to the Yankees for the 13th time in 18 meetings this season, and they're in third place in the American League East, 17 1/2 games behind NY despite their 76-67 record. "It's one of those things that caught me".

Dombrowski's hire was seen as a win-now move - he aggressively built an American League champion club in Detroit previously.

He was also the one who hired Red Sox manager Alex Cora right before the 2018 season. Dombrowski traded Porcello to Boston in 2014, before following him in 2015.
