Shortly after the slumping Boston Red Sox lost 10-5 to the New York Yankees on Sunday night, the team fired Dave Dombrowski, their president of baseball operations, less than a year after he led the Red Sox to a historical 108-win season and a World Series title in 2018:
But Dombrowski’s firing is giving a history-making opportunity to someone in the Red Sox front office. Until new hires can be made, the Red Sox will now be run by a four-person committee: three assistant general managers, all men, and for the first time ever, a woman.
Raquel Ferreira, the vice president of major and minor league operations, is already one of the highest-ranking women in baseball. She’s been with the Red Sox for 20 years, working her way from administrative assistant to the upper echelon of baseball power brokers. And now she’ll be the highest-ranking woman to ever be in a team’s baseball operations department.
Ferreira is highly respected by both Red Sox employees and players. In a profile from the Athletic in 2018, she was called the “organizational mom” for how she helps young, newly-drafted players become acclimated to professional baseball. Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, Christian Vazquez, and Jackie Bradley Jr. all gushed about how invaluable she was to their early development.
Ferreira is being appointed to this decision-making group on an interim basis. Once the offseason starts, the Red Sox will hire someone permanently and Ferreira will go back to her job as one of the most powerful women in all of baseball. But Ferreria’s brief ascendency to baseball operations serves as a reminder that there are still baseball mountains for women to summit. Ferreira is the first woman to make team baseball decisions at such a high level, but she definitely won’t be the last.
Baseball, like all professional sports, is being used as a vehicle to promote a radical anti-White social agenda, and White men like Dave Dombrowski are going to be more and more on the chopping block, even if that means many teams have to become mediocre or perennial losers.
ESPN has seen historic drops in viewership because of their shameless pandering to race baiters and anti-White agitators, but that hasn’t stopped them from pushing an agenda that inherently alienates and demonizes its majority White viewers.
It goes without saying that if a Hispanic or Black woman had impossibly led the Red Sox to a World Series title and then been summarily fired, all hell would have broken loose, but let’s not allow a blatant double standard and rampant hypocrisy stand in the way of a nation-wrecking social agenda masquerading as “the right thing to do.”
And regardless of the hype, a Hispanic woman with no baseball experience doesn’t get fast-tracked from being a coffee-fetching secretary to assistant GM because she’s the most qualified for the job. Behind all affirmative action promotions such as hers is a tacit acknowledgment of inferiority and inability to rise in a true meritocracy.
