As the NFL finished up its first Sunday of regular-season action this year, it’s the Major League Baseball world that’s making news.

Immediately after Boston’s 10-5 loss to the New York Yankees at Fenway, the Red Sox announced that they have fired team president Dave Dombrowski.

Given that the Sox are defending champs and have seen a ton of success under the leadership of the longtime executive, this is an absolutely shocking move.

Sure Boston is not going to be playing playoff baseball in October, but most figured that Dombrowski has more than earned his keep.

Reactions from the MLB world indicated as much.
