Apparently not yet satisfied with the public shaming he received after his full page "explanation" ad in a local paper, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has now gone straight to the press to explain himself further. As you might expect, it didn't go well.
In a progressively contentious 25-minute interview with the Miami Herald Loria proved that he is the arrogant, clueless ass that everybody believes him to be. There were many moments in the interview that simply defy belief, including Loria's steadfast denial of the recent story that he advised Jose Reyes to buy a house just days before Reyes was traded, but the single line that will ensure him a first class ticket to hell is this:
But you can't make promises in this game because strange things happen all the time.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Jeffrey Loria is going to lecture us all on promises. This is the man who "promised" to enter a good faith agreement to build a new ballpark in Miami, onl...

Wow. All I can say is wow. Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria must really think that the few remaining fans of the team are really stupid. Amid growing criticism of him and the operation of his baseball club, Loria used the power of the pen to write an open letter to the fans of the Marlins, a letter that was published in three South Florida newspapers including The Miami Herald....
HERE'S THE PLAN
Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria took out a full-page ad in the Miami Herald to attempt to explain the direction of the team. See what he said.
Spring training offers players, coaches, fans and management a chance to see where their respective franchises could be headed, providing glimpses of the future with prospects or seeing how established stars show up and get to work.
Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, perhaps feeling the rejuvenating properties of spring, penned a letter to fans, a letter that appeared as an ad in the...
JUPITER, Fla. Several Miami Marlins headed to the clubhouse Tuesday morning by walking between a cluster of microphones, several video cameras and a group of reporters.
Is Obama coming? outfielder Bryan Petersen asked.
No. Media members were waiting for someone who actually had been more elusive than the president during the previous four months Jeffrey Loria.
The Marlins owner...

Up to yesterday, the injuries so far this spring have been minor. However, the Miami Marlins suffered a substantial blow yesterday when they lost catcher Jeff Mathis. Mathis suffered a broken collar bone and will miss the next six weeks.
According to an Associated Press report, the injury came when Matt Holliday fouled a pitch back and hit Mathis. Mathis will likely be...
The Miami Marlins played to a 2-2 tie on Sunday in Viera after tying the Washington Nationals in the ninth inning. As is customary in the Spring, the two teams agreed to play one extra inning before calling it a day. With the exception of Ryan Webb, every Miami pitcher to take the mound did a fine job including two electric innings from Evan Reed. The major league relief...
Contrary to popular belief, most writers covering sports do not enjoy writing articles month after month, year after year, in which they report nothing but negativity around this facet or that. In all honesty, it’s tiresome.
At the same time, those of us that spend a great deal of time watching over teams, clubs, and leagues, are passionate and actively engaged in wanting to see...
The Miami Marlins will lose backup catcher Jeff Mathis for at least six weeks. The Marlins were taking on the St. Louis Cardinals in a grapefruit league spring training contest when Cardinals Matt Holliday fouled off a ball that came around and struck Mathis on his right clavicle. The injury now leaves the Marlins thin at catcher. Mathis was the only other catcher on the teams spring...
The Miami Marlins hit three home runs including a grand slam on Tuesday to beat the New York Mets 7-5 and move to 2-1-1 on the Spring. The slam came courtesy of Casey Kotchman who is trying to land a role at first base to begin the year. Giancarlo Stanton and and Matt Downs hit their first long-balls of the Spring. Downs is also involved in the first base competition...

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist When Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss died last week, it didn't take long for the conversation to turn to his place among the best owners in the history of sports.
Perhaps it's only fitting that the disastrous public reappearance of Jeffrey Loria renewed debate this week over who is the worst.
In the city of...
Yesterday the Mets dropped a game to 7-5 to the Miami Marlins. Before we talk about the OF performance, let’s just go through some quick game notes.
- Mejia had a bad outing allowed 5 runs, 4 earned in one inning of work. I would be more concerned about this but he also just got to camp, so he could easily be 2 weeks behind everyone else. I would also be more apathetic...
Jeffrey Loria and the Marlins front office need to save face as much as anyone since Harvey Dent (dated pop culture reference: check). One suggestion has been that they should re-sign their one remaining superstar, Giancarlo Stanton. That is easier said than done, given that Stanton publicly expressed displeasure in the immediate wake of the team’s massive trade with Toronto. Even...
