Reports Point To Dombrowski Hiring Frank Wren As GM

Dombrowski (L); Wren (R)
Multiple reports now suggest that new Red Sox President of Baseball Operations Dave Dmobrowski will hire former Braves executive Frank Wren as the new Boston GM. Dombrowski's reputation is as a 'big picture trader', while Wren is characterized as more of a day-to-day operations guy—so this combination makes sense. Wren is probably more likely to be OK with a diminished GM role—unlike the departing Ben Cherington. All in all, this is probably a good secondary move. Stay tuned, other shoes are sure to drop—all over Yawkey Way.
