Fun fact: Dave Dombrowski not only frequents the Dunkin’ Donuts in Kenmore Square near Fenway Park, he hangs out there and enjoys his coffee. You know, instead of zipping right out the door like most patrons. And apparently, the Red Sox president of baseball operations even talks it up with fans who recognize him.
Watch Dombrowski’s explanation of his Dunks routine in the above video, via MassLive. He said that he gets about 10 fans a day talking to him about the team as he sits down to have his cup of coffee at the Kenmore Dunkin’ Donuts, where he is apparently a regular customer.
He even told reporters that some of those said fans tell him not to make any moves. Which would run counter to what most of Red Sox Nation would’ve liked to see this past offseason. But he also said that fans have told him, “Don’t do anything unwise.” Which everyone would agree with. Cutting Chris Sale and trading Andrew Benintendi for a Dunkins gift card, for instance. Unwise.
Anyway, if you really want to tell Dombrowski your thoughts on his work with the Red Sox, you can ostensibly do it in person. Just camp out at the Kenmore Dunkin’ Donuts every morning. Hide in the trash bin if you have to. Then just pop out and press him for answers, and maybe he’d be startled enough to tell you the truth.
The actual truth is, Dombrowski made virtually no moves on the Red Sox roster. So the hope is that new manager Alex Cora can get the most out of them and the team didn’t really need to make any moves. If it works out, you can head to your local Dunkin’ Donuts to thank Dombrowski yourself.
