09:07 AM ET 09.23 | As Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria considers whether to fire Ozzie Guillen, Braves and former Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez cracked: "There's not a manager dead or alive that Jeffrey thinks is good enough. Not Connie Mack, not anyone." Loria has had five since 2006, including two that went on to win a lot elsewhere: the Yankees' Joe Girardi (78-84 with the Marlins, 470-327 with the Yankees) and Gonzalez (276-279 with the Marlins, 175-137 with the Braves). The lesson Loria should learn here? "Stick with someone," Gonzalez said. "Give guys opportunities. But he likes to make changes. As long as he owns the team, he makes the decisions. In his mind, they're the right ones."

Hard to argue with fact.

Loria is another Jerry Jones who thinks he knows more than anyone else how to get good ball players to fit in your system and mange them on the field. Until some of these guys wake up and let someone else run the show they will get what they deserve nothing.

Wait just a damn minute. You mean to tell me if someone fired you, you wouldnt say anything about it, because its not any of your buisness anymore. LOL. What a stupid thing to say. You would say something everytime someone asked you just like Freddi did.

Girardi is still telling Loria to sit down and shut up

I'm sure he'll never regret standing up to Loria either.

Wiseup: Loria Knows so much about managing a major league team, he should manage the team. He would get a close up look at what goes on. If he fails then he can fire himself........
