Ozzie Guillen had already put himself at-risk to be fired after his comments about Fidel Castro, and his team’s disappointing season has done little to help his job status. Now we’re learning that Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is unhappy with Guillen and leaning towards firing the manager.

The Palm Beach Post’s Joe Capozzi reports that Loria is upset with Guillen for calling him out regarding the Marlins’ inability to establish stability at manager.

“If Jeffrey doesn’t think I’m doing the job I should do … it’s not the first time he’s fired a manager,” Guillen said on Friday, per Capozzi. “Look yourself in the mirror and ask why so many (bleeping) managers come through here.”

Those comments apparently set off Loria.

Guillen has also questioned the job status of many people tied to the organization in light of the team’s brutal 66-87 record.

“When you are in last place you need a better manager, better general manager, better owner, a better everything when you are a last-place team because we all failed,” he said last weekend.

“Whoever works for the Marlins and denies that he should be fired is full of (expletive). My coaches, myself, the front office, my players, we’re all involved in this thing. We all failed. And we’ve got to be better. Hopefully we learn by the mistakes we made and we move on,” Guillen added.

Some of the people involved with this year’s disastrous team will have an opportunity to learn from their mistakes in future years with the Marlins. Guillen probably won’t be one of them. In a way, they’re both right. Guillen probably doesn’t deserve to be back, and Loria probably deserves to be criticized for getting rid of managers. I’m still wondering why the Marlins got rid of Fredi Gonzalez.
