BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Red Sox are World Series champs, and president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski was the architect. Now, for the second time, he's baseball's Executive of the Year.

Baseball America honored Dombrowski in 2006 as well.

Dombrowski made several moves in 2018 to help the Sox to a championship, including hiring Manager of the Year finalist Alex Cora, signing MVP candidate J.D. Martinez, trading for World Series MVP Steve Pearce and Nathan Eovaldi, and re-signing All-Star Mitch Moreland.

Dombrowski marveled at Boston's final record after that Game 5 clincher in Los Angeles.

"119 and 57, those numbers are mind-boggling," he said. "You think if you have a good club, you might win 105 or something with the postseason and you're really satisfied. You start talking about it, it's more than winning two thirds of your games throughout the year. I think it's a tribute to all these guys."

Dombrowski's the latest member of the Sox to earn some hardware. Mookie Betts is the American League MVP, and the club also had several Silver Slugger and Gold Glove recipients.
