Red Sox fire president Dave Dombrowski 10 months after World Series win

Red Sox fire president Dave Dombrowski 10 months after World Series win The Boston Red Sox announced Monday they have fired president Dave Dombrowski, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan. Boston plans to promote assistant general manager Eddie Romero to replace Dombrowski, sources told Passan. But the team later rebuked that report, stating Romero will share general manager duties with fellow assistants Brian O'Halloran and Zach Scott for the rest of the season, according to the Boston Herald's Jason Mastrodonato. Dombrowski's departure comes less than a year after the Red Sox won the 2018 World Series.

The San Diego Padres have relieved manager Andy Green of his duties, the club announced Saturday.

Bench coach Rod Barajas will serve as the team's interim skipper for the rest of the season.

Green had held the managerial role since 2016 and has two years left on his contract after receiving an extension in 2017. The Padres went 274-366 with Green at the helm.

"I want to thank Andy for his tireless work and dedication to the Padres over the last four seasons," executive vice president and general manager A.J. Preller said. "This was an incredibly difficult decision, but one we felt was necessary at this time to take our organization to the next level and expedite the process of bringing a championship to San Diego.

Chemical fears sparks all-out emergency response to Spryfield fire

Chemical fears sparks all-out emergency response to Spryfield fire Firefighters, police and paramedics responded in full force to a Spyfield, N.S., house fire Monday morning after hearing the home had chemicals that could be explosive.

"Our search for a new manager will begin immediately."

The Padres were expected by many to take a step forward in 2019 but have failed to live up to expectations. The club sports a 69-85 record despite signing four-time All-Star Manny Machado to a monster 10-year deal in March and blue-chip prospects like Fernando Tatis Jr. and Chris Paddack turning into stars.

San Diego sits fourth in the NL West and hasn't made the playoffs since 2006.
