No 'defined timetable' to find next Red Sox head of baseball operations


Dave Dombrowski was let go by the Red Sox on Sept. 9. Since then the Red Sox baseball operations have been run by the group consisting of Eddie Romero, Brian O'Halloran, Zack Scott and Raquel Ferreira. During these few weeks, the Sox' ownership has been formulating a plan for what the decision-making process will look like going forward.

That is all we have so far.

When will we have some sort of definition regarding who exactly will be succeeding Dombrowski? According to Red Sox president Sam Kennedy, there is no date circled on the calendar by himself, principal owner John Henry or chairman Tom Werner.

As Kennedy wrote in a text to, "John, Tom and I are actively engaged in a comprehensive due diligence process. There is no defined timetable for the search, as our only priority is to identify the right leadership for our baseball operations department as we move forward."

What this means is that there isn't a mandate to find Dombrowski's replacement by the time the General Managers Meetings in Arizona kick off on Nov. 11.

According to a source familiar with the situation, the Red Sox also haven't determined how the job in question will be defined, not committing to the same President of Baseball Operations title Dombrowski held.
