Multiple Reports Link Angels To Dave Dombrowski

Angels general manager Billy Eppler is in the final season of his contract, and with the Angels assured of a fifth straight losing season, multiple reports have linked the team to veteran executive Dave Dombrowski as a potential replacement. The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal calls the Halos the “most likely” team to make a switch at GM, adding that Dombrowski is the most frequently mentioned replacement option. Bill Shaikin of the L.A. Times writes that the “widely held belief” is that the Angels are in for yet another front-office regime change and that the “industry consensus” is that owner Arte Moreno will pursue Dombrowski.

It’s been five years since Eppler took over for Jerry Dipoto, who resigned from his post in the wake of a highly publicized rift with then-manager Mike Scioscia. Los Angeles has yet to return to the postseason or even put together a winning record in that time. Instead of postseason wins built around the game’s best player, Mike Trout, much of the focus has been on the Angels’ perennial struggles to keep an underachieving pitching staff healthy enough to take the mound.

Former Red Sox executive Dave Dombrowski joins Nashville MLB initiative

A group devoted to bringing Major League Baseball to Nashville has enlisted one of the league’s most prominent executives to help its effort.

Music City Baseball LLC has added Dave Dombrowski, who built the Boston Red Sox and Florida Marlins into World Series winners, as a consultant and adviser.

Dombrowski has played a key role in leading clubs that have won more than 2,000 games with nine playoff appearances, four pennants and a pair of World Series championships. Dombrowski, who will turn 64 this month, most recently served as president of baseball operations for the Red Sox….

Dombrowski will be joining a Music City Baseball leadership team that includes former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, MLB All-Star and former general manager Dave Stewart, longtime St. Louis Cardinals, Oakland Athletics and Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa and Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin.
