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." Neither Beinfest nor Samson were quoted in the report. Sources told the newspaper that despite Loria having taken the reins of baseball decisions Samson's job is not in jeopardy even though sources paint a picture of dysfunction in the front office.
