JEFFREY LORIA NEWS

Slow down the Marlins hype machine

The Marlins are the hottest team in baseball! It is the feelgood story of the early season, assuming you can be willfully ignorant of the prominent involvement of Jeffrey Loria and his acolyte David Samson. They are a team brimming with young talent and look as if they might be ready to have that talent come together to be competitive years ahead of schedule. Or maybe not. As fun...

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria relinquishing control

The Miami Marlins have had a mixed offseason in terms of successes and failures before the 2014 campaign. On the one hand, they made a smart move to pick up Jarrod Saltalamacchia for three years at very affordable prices. On the other hand, they commited two years to a potentially replacement-level player in Garrett Jones. For Marlins fans, you have to find some of their moves good...

Marlins Owner Jeffrey Loria Sold a Painting for Almost as Much as His Team’s 2013 Payroll

Jeffrey Loria is one of the most criticized owners in sports. He owns the Miami Marlins baseball team, and despite his enormous wealth, the team’s payroll was just over $35 million at the start of the 2013 season, per Newsday. Only the Houston Astros had a lower payroll. Marlins fans have been hoping that Loria will someday invest his wealth into the product on the field, but instead...

Marlins owner just sold painting for slightly less than team's total payroll

Jeffrey Loria, the owner of the Miami Marlins, has zero interest investing his mass fortune into the roster of the team. This man has oodles of money and convinced the city government to use tax-payer money on a brand new stadium in a terrible area of Miami, and he gutted the roster before the inaugural season at it concluded. Needless to say, this man saves money whenever he can...

Marlins Owner Jeffrey Loria Sells Painting For $32 Million

  The rich get richer… Jeffrey Loria aka Darth Loria, if you’re a Marlins fan, is a pretty horrible owner, but the one thing the guy does have a knack for is getting money. On Monday Loria sold an Alberto Giacometti portrait for the sum of $32.6 million, at an art auction in New York. Mind you, that’s just $7 million less than the entire Marlins payroll–seriously. In case...

Caption contest: What's Loria thinking?

Ah, Jeffrey Loria. The Miami Marlins owner has had quite the run. The team won a World Series in 2003 under his leadership, then he famously shed most of the players that made that possible. Earlier this year, he pulled a similar move, having to explain why he dismantled another team full of talent after getting the city to help build him a new park. These things have made him...

Marlins promote Michael Hill and Dan Jennings to solve front office crisis

On Friday, the Miami Marlins fired long-time president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest. I wondered aloud as to who would want to work for Jeffrey Loria.

The club has also let go of special assistant Jim Fleming. The Marlins are 59-100 in 2013, but you can't fault Beinfest for that given the dysfunctional atmosphere perpetrated by Loria in Miami.

One Player Away

It may not seem like it to many but the Miami Marlins are one player away from being a contending team in 2014.    That one player needs to be an impact bat, someone that can bat around Giancarlo Stanton and take this lineup to the next level.   That bat can come via free agency or via trade with the stockpiled youth that Miami has in the system.   One thing is certain, owner...
