Red Sox

Dombrowski and Henry willing to ignore luxury tax threshold

News was hard to come by at Fenway Park Monday as the Red Sox formally introduced Alex Cora as their new manager, a move they had officially announced almost two weeks ago.

But there was a fairly significant announcement about 2018 and it came in the form of a one-word answer from president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski.

Dombrowski was asked if it would be a goal for the payroll to remain under the CBT (competitive balance or “luxury” tax) for 2018.
