Whoa.  Just 77 days ago John Henry said Ben Cherington would be the general manager of the Boston Red Sox for a "very long time".  But as of about 9:45 last night, that span of time ran its course as Cherington decided to leave the team rather than stay on as GM under newly-named President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski.

Cherington had been with the Red Sox since 1999, and had held the GM role over the last four seasons while winning the 2013 World Series.  Dombrowski put together the 1997 World Champs with the Florida Marlins, and more recently had great success with the Detroit Tigers winning the AL Central four years in a row.  A lot remains to be seen with how the distribution of power will be handled with the Red Sox, but knowing what we know as of right now--are you on board with the moves the Sox made?
