08:09 AM ET 06.16 | That surprise, feel-good start has given way to some drudgery for the Marlins. Florida manager Edwin Rodriguez isn't losing any sleep over the team's 1-14 stretch, but that's only because he's REM-deprived no matter how the Marlins are playing. When it comes to shut-eye, Rodriguez makes Charlie Sheen look like Rip Van Winkle. "I only sleep for three or four hours a night," Rodriguez said Wednesday. "I've been that way for many, many years, even back home. Sleeping is overrated." ... Marlins CEO Jeffrey Loria, an owner who can be euphemistically referred to as "hands-on," earned a reputation for impetuousness by firing Joe Girardi and Fredi Gonzalez, who are now working for marquee franchises in New York and Atlanta. And Loria showed that he meant business this year by venting about the team's "uninspired" play midway through spring training.

He is not worried because he doesn't sleep? Maybe if he slept he would have a clearer view of his team.

Edwin Rodriguez gets a mention in TnR and a Charles Sheen comparison to boot ... WINNING!!!

Loria is a scum sucking weasel. Let anyone try and win with that team. Lost his best pitcher and best player from a very thin roster to begin with. They just brought a kid up yesterday to pitch a game, and to do so they had to make a change to the 40 man roster in addition to the 25. That is very unusual, and points out how weak they are.

If I had that Jeffrey Loria as my owner, I'd be losing sleep the day I was hired.

He's not worried because he knows the way Loria works, he'll probably get fired and wind up managing the Dodgers next year no matter what he does with the Marlins.
