From the Miami Herald:
We hear that beyond making decisions about what free agents to pursue, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria's involvement in personnel has been so extensive that it even included sending multiple players to the minors. But there's no indication that Loria will pull back on his involvement in baseball decisions.This is a bigger problem than Larry Beinfest. Ask Dan Snyder how well his team has done since he started meddling with player personnel issues over a decade ago...
Oh, and in case you want to spend the next hour crying at your desk:
Even if the Marlins offer Giancarlo Stanton a longterm contract, he said he isn't sure he would take it. He said he would like to be here, but hasn't decided philosophically whether to test free agency after 2016. "It will depend on what's on the table." He will get a huge raise after 2013, when he becomes arbitration eligible.Excuse me, must go breathe into a paper bag now.
