Re: Dave Dombrowski New Red Sox President

The difference is that the Red Sox are willing to spend on proven talent, but Dombrowski isn't under any pressure to mortgage the house to win a World Series right this very instant. So there'd be no incentive to sell off a Yoan Moncada (who's posted a 341/432/551, 6 HR, 22 XBH, 23 BB, 38KO line in 167 AB post all star break), for example, to plug a hole in an attempt to win a title in 2016. That's a distinct difference from his marching orders in Detroit.
