The Red Sox announced last month that Chaim Bloom, 36, would become the team's chief baseball officer, replacing Dave Dombrowski, who was fired as president of baseball operations in September.

NBC Sports Boston anchor and reporter Trenni Kusnierek joined Boston Public Radio Tuesday to discuss the new hire.

"The Red Sox want to go in a different direction. Dombrowski is not known for building a farm system, he's not known for finding talent and developing talent," she said. "He's known as ... he's going to spend a bunch of money, he's going to win a championship. That's exactly what he did," she said.

According to Kusnierek, after the Red Sox "fell on their face" last year, the organization sought something new.

"[Bloom] is a guy who was with the Tampa Bay Rays, one of the smallest payrolls in baseball, no one ever goes to their games, he was constantly having to sort of maneuver things to put the best team on the field, and they won 90-plus games the past two years," she said.
