Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria can be rather decisive when he wants to gut his roster. Yet when it comes to his front office, he waffles and waffles and waffles some more.
If Loria wants to fire Larry Beinfest as president of baseball operations, then he should fire him. Instead, Loria is staying ominously silent while reports circulate, for the second straight September, that Beinfest could be gone.
Loria's refusal to address the topic is unfair to Beinfest, who has served the owner for 14 years, both with the Expos and Marlins. The lingering tension within the Marlins' front office, meanwhile, is damaging to the organization.
Beinfest is miserable, major-league sources say. You would be miserable, too, if your owner over the last four years had gone from merely meddlesome to completely hands-on, even vetoing minor-league callups for reasons unrelated to performance.
The Marlins' power structure, according to sources, essentially consists of Loria and VP of pl...
BEST OF MAXIM
As another dismal season winds down for the Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has taken over as the decision maker for the majority -- and perhaps all -- of the team's baseball matters according to the Miami Herald.
That would seem to put the futures of president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest and team president David Samson in jeopardy for next season.
This would be a pretty great way for Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria to start reinvesting some of the money his franchise saved in that November 2012 firesale.

The Miami Marlins continue an 11-game road trip after dropping three of four to the New York Mets over the weekend at Citi Field to open the trip. Miami lost a pair of games in the series by a single run including a 1-0, 12-inning contest on Sunday. The Marlins now head to Philadelphia...
One win in two games is a pretty good day for the Miami Marlins.
Donovan Solano and Henderson Alvarez led Miami to a 3-0 victory over the New York Mets on Saturday afternoon, but Daisuke Matsuzaka shut down the Marlins in the nightcap for a doubleheader split.
''Probably a good guy to pitch after a long first game and a long day. But you tip your hat to him. He did a nice...
If the first pitch that plunked Donovan Solano didn't get his attention the second one high off his left shoulder certainly did.
The third time the Marlins' second baseman stepped up against Carlos Torres he wasted no time striking back. Solano smacked the second pitch of the sixth inning into the Party City Deck in left-center at Citi Field.
Solano was a catalyst with...
Donovan Solano got some payback after he was hit by two pitches, launching a home run and making two terrific defensive plays that sent Henderson Alvarez and the Miami Marlins past the New York Mets 3-0 in the opener of a doubleheader Saturday.
Logan Morrison drove in two runs, one on a line drive off the right wrist of Frank Francisco that knocked the oft-injured reliever out of...
The Miami Marlins had plenty of chances Sunday. They just wasted them all.
The Marlins were hitless in 12 at-bats with runners in scoring position and squandered an impressive outing by Tom Koehler in a 1-0, 12-inning loss into the New York Mets.
''We had opportunities to score early in the game and we had opportunities in the ninth. That's the difference,''...
Taking a look at an intriguing, but unheralded prospect in teenager Jose Fernandez.
Sam Dyson will never forget his first start. He hopes his next one will last a little longer.
Cliff Lee had three hits, knocked in a career-high four runs and struck out a season-high 14 to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 12-2 win over the Miami Marlins on Monday.
Dyson (0-1) allowed seven runs on six hits and three walks while striking out only one in 2 2-3 innings.
The 2013 USSSA B Softball Tourney in Florida erupted into a “SoftBRAWL” game after tensions boiled over between a bunch of old dudes who love beer and wings. No joke folks, fighting in beer league softball. They take their ball seriously in the Sunshine State.
