Marlins Still Weighing Leadership Changes

Not only is Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria deciding whether to fire manager Ozzie Guillen, he is considering restructuring his team’s front office, MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports. Loria probably won’t make a decision until the Marlins’ organizational meetings take place later in October.

Earlier this offseason, reports surfaced that the Marlins would dismiss president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest and replace him with vice president of player personnel Dan Jennings. As of late last month, Beinfest's job appeared to be safe. Like Guillen, he’s under contract through 2015.

There’s a “very strong chance” Guillen returns, Frisaro reports. The Marlins haven’t decided whether to fire Guillen, but they’ve started considering possible replacements. ESPN.com’s Buster Olney reported last week that the Marlins are aggressively seeking a replacement for Guillen. Mike Lowell doesn’t appear to be a fit in Miami at this time.

The way this club fires managers based on front office mistakes is amazing. Complete incompetence on their part.

Fans asked Jeff Ireland to fire himself… Can we do the same for Loria? Everyone needs to be fired, even Ozzie he’s a garbage manager but the team was awful for much more reasons. Get rid of all of Em and start over

The problem is that the Marlins don’t have any fans. All those bandwagoners jumped ship after opening night…

Not like any member of the He Man Marlin Haters Club knows any other argument.
