Despite rumors to the contrary, two sources say that owner Jeffrey Loria does not plan to make any changes to his front office staff, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald. President of baseball operations Larry Beinfest, under contract through 2015, would appear safe for at least another year.
While Beinfest may not have to worry about losing his job this winter, manager Ozzie Guillen's status is still very much in the year. Sources say that Loria is still mulling a decision on whether to fire Guillen after meeting Friday with his front office contingent and club president David Samson in New York. Mike Lowell has been among the names connected to the job, but sources say that he would not be among those considered.
Yesterday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reported that the club has already contacted at least one potential managerial replacement and are likely to go with an inexpensive alternative if they move on from Guillen.
