Here is what was going on this week that caught my eye.
1. Starting with the Red Sox, the hiring of Dave Dombrowski and the leaving of Ben Cherington has definitely shaken up the baseball operations side of things.
It will be interesting to see who Dombrowski goes after pitching-wise in the off-season.
2. Out on the links Ryan Jacobs and Sylvain Gagnon took home a win at the 40th Annual Arthur Mandros Tournament.
