Idea of Red Sox going with internal candidates may be gaining steam

This is the John Henry quote from just a few days before the end of the regular season that so many keep pivoting to:

“This is a challenging offseason. So, to put one of the (internal) candidates you keep bringing up in charge and responsible for that, that’s sort of a tough way to start your career as a general manager. So, we are starting the search looking outward.”

And so they did look outward. The view, however, may have been a bit foggier than anticipated. No Theo Epstein. No Mike Hazen. No Andrew Friedman.

Now Red Sox ownership may be ultimately realizing its ultimate solution toward finding Dave Dombrowski’s was already inside the building.

While team officials remain mum on the interviewing/hiring process, the rumblings throughout the baseball world have more to do with how no names from outside the organization are being tied to the job. There is a growing belief that the foundation of the Red Sox’ baseball decision-making process will land back where it started, with some sort of chain of command that involves current executives Eddie Romero, Brian O’Halloran, Zack Scott and Raquel Ferreira.

So, a Quadrumvirate?

That sounds really unwieldy and confusing. Just pick one!

Diocletian tried a tetrarchy. Most of the quarter-emperors ended up killing each other, I think, but it worked for a little while.

Long enough for the Red Sox to get under the luxury tax threshold?

If you murder someone, you don't have to pay them. So... maybe?

An external candidate, Ray’s VP of Baseball Operation Chaim Bloom, seems to be the current favorite:
Rays VP of baseball operations Chaim Bloom is among those to have interviewed for the Red Sox GM opening, according to reporting from Chad Jennings and Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic (link). The club’s hiring search has been notably quiet since the exit of executive Dave Dombrowski, but Jennings says the process “seems to be coming to an end“. ESPN’s Jeff Passan adds that “multiple sources” believe Bloom will ultimately get the job (link).
