08:10 AM ET 08.07 | An offseason that generated interest in Miami has given way to another disappointing regular season. Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria needs to understand this: He squandered his taxpayer gift of a new stadium and failed dreadfully this season. Everyone can draw a list of why the Marlins season went splat. Every list should start here: Loria. Failed. Dreadfully. His baseball people have started sorting the mess with a series of trades pointed to tomorrow. But it's only a start. Nothing is cleaned up. And it means little if Loria doesn't stay out of the way. ... The owner is a meddler of the highest order. On some level, it's his team, his money and he can do whatever he pleases. But the way he's running it the organization looks like a completed disorganization.

IT has been entertaining watching the Marlins implode.

Somehow or other I don't think that Jose was ready to be the leader!

the best part about it for me a Mets fan and NL East rival...is that the trades they pulled off weren't even that good....Reyes and Stanton...after that who knows ...and for how long....

John Henry should hire Ozzie to manege the red Sox -- Ozzie will not take the crap Valentine is - Ozzie will just take Pedroia, Gonzalez, and others into the dug out and puch their whiny lights out

They have some nice pieces at the major league level, and added a lot of depth to their farm system; they should be able to build an annual contender. But why the picture of Ozzie Guillen? He may not have helped the team much, but he didn't cause it to fail either.

Correct... After watching Reyes in NY since he came up, I can say Jose cares about one thing... and that's Jose :-)

Have to disagree with the article.

Is Loria a bad owner? Yep
Has he done bad things to the Fans of his team and the town? Yep
Did he blow up this team too quick ? Yep

However - he did open up his wallet and bring in guys to help make the team better. Obviously, that didn't work out - but you can't blame him for that.

the miami florida marlins are too weak in their front office, their organization needs to built a tough patience in the business role,,,

August 7, 2012  01:51 PM ET

August 7, 2012  01:52 PM ET

there has to be more than just a simple addition to substraction, then again busines not always flowrish in the first spring,,,

the marlins did expect to be a toughest competactive franchise at the very first season,, but they should had known much better, the seeds can't give fruit before growing any leaves and branches,,,

August 7, 2012  02:02 PM ET

this marlins franchise expect too much from this season roster, but too bad nobody can harvest at the first try, the marlins organization should and most have to learn the process this type of approach needs more than just simple small amount of investments,

August 7, 2012  02:05 PM ET

thay are tough times, there are hard times, there are more than just a difficult times, better its to learn the right way on doing any of business same days would be a great benefits,,, some days would a great disappointment to the bigger investors,,,
