Phillies extend Dave Dombrowski through 2027 season
Phillies President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski has been extended through the 2027 season, John Middleton announced just moments ago.
Dave Dombrowski was named POBO back on December 11th, 2020. Before his time in Philadelphia, he spent seasons with the Marlins, Red Sox, Tigers, and Expos.
Dave Dombrowski’s Success Over the Years
- NL Pennant with Florida Marlins
- 1 World Series with Florida Marlins
- 2 AL Pennants with Detroit Tigers
- 1 AL Pennant with Boston Red Sox
- 1 World Series with Boston Red Sox
- 1 NL Pennant with Philadelphia Phillies
Dombrowski is one of the most successful front-office personnel in the history of major league baseball, leaving almost no doubt in my mind that he’ll find his way to Cooperstown. After winning the NL Pennant just over a month ago, Dombrowski became the first GM in MLB history to win four pennants with four different teams.
Dave Dombrowski has always been an aggressive person when it comes to acquisitions. He signed two power-bats in Kyle Schwarber and Nick Castellanos ahead of the 2022 season, rounding out our outfield/DH spot heading into the season. As the Phillies approached the trade deadline, moves needed to be made. The tendency over the years with the Phillies front office has been sitting on our own hands, but Dombrowski did the complete opposite of that.
Dave went and got Noah Syndergaard, who pitched multiple meaningful innings in the playoffs for the Phillies, in exchange for Mickey Moniak, the guy who was supposed to be the centerfielder of the future. He then went and got the true centerfielder of the future in Brandon Marsh, whose elite glove has been on display since the second he got here. He also acquired David Robertson to bolster the Phillies bullpen for the 2nd-half and playoffs.
“His keen eye for talent set us on a path to win the National League pennant. I firmly believe that under his stewardship, we will reach our ultimate goal” – Phillies owner John Middleton
