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.
"He has marginalized the front office" a source told the newspaper. "The front office isn't making decisions. Loria makes them all."
The Marlins dropped to 55-95 on the season following Monday night's 12-2 loss to the Phillies.
Efforts by the Herald to reach Loria were unsuccessful but a team spokesman issued a statement that read: "For over a decade the Marlins have maintained an official policy of not commenting on personnel during the season."

Juan Pierre is even with the Yankee Clipper.
Pierre tied Joe DiMaggio on the all-time hits list when he doubled in the seventh inning of the Miami Marlins' 6-4 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.
For a team with the second-worst record in the majors, these are still moments worthy of celebration.
Pierre, pinch-hitting for pitcher Brian Flynn, hit a double to...
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.
