08:17 AM ET 09.24 | Ozzie Guillen's mouth may have gotten its owner in hot water again. Apparently owner Jeffrey Loria is angry at [Guillen] for comments Guillen made that were critical of Loria, according to a person who has spoken with Marlins officials. Exactly what Guillen said that ticked Loria off is not clear. But Loria didn't like being, in the source's words, "called out" by Guillen. ... On Thursday, USA Today reported that [Larry Beinfest] would be fired and that Guillen appeared to be safe. Now, it appears as though Beinfest is safe and that Guillen might not return next year, the source confirmed. The source put the likelihood of Guillen not being back at "75-25," based on his conversations with Marlins officials.

One season is about the shelf life for a manager working for Loria.

Good riddance, Ozzie! He should have been fired after offending south Florida's Cuban community with his moronic pro-Castro quote at the beginning of the season. His oversized ego along with his lack of control and failure to contend for a playoff spot with a young and talented team is reason enough to show him the door. Let's bring in Terry Francona. True, he lost control of a veteran clubhouse with the RedSox but I think he'd be great with a young and underachieving Marlins team. Hey, we can't do much worse.

He'd be a perfect fit for the Red Sox to bring cohesion and stability to their clubhouse.

So, Loria is fine with the team's performance, but he's unhappy with Guillens's comments?

Guillen should go manage the Cuban national team. If he criticizes ownership there it would mean not just getting fired but a firing squad.

Loria and Ozzie deserve themselves!!! It's like hiring a Jewelry Thieve as a Security Guard at Tiffiney's!!!

At least they get to keep that Fruity Cockatto of a Ballpark. Not even Loria can take that away from them

Who do you think was responsible for that gawdy looking ballpark and the hideous uniforms anyways?
