09:09 AM ET 09.30 | One Marlins front office official said Jeffrey Loria had no business saying Fredi Gonzalez was a "colossal failure" after Gonzalez claimed no manager is good enough for Loria. "Jeffrey said he was here five years, and he was here 3 1/2," the Marlins official said. "And two winning seasons with a low payroll -- how can you call that a colossal failure? Come on!"

What's with the Fan Nation fixation with this franchise?

QUOTE(#3):

Rest assured, he'll be canned if Loria finds out who it is.

I'm guessing it is an official who has found out he is already scheduled for termination.

Loria is the ultimate POS.

Single handedly killed the franchise in MTL hoping to move it south. When it failed he got the Marlins and won a miraculous/walking on the water championship with a payroll under 30 millions.

kindly go f* urself mr. Loria.

wiseup: the colossal failure is loria's for not keeping his but in his office and his mouth shut. hire a Genaral Manager. Let him hire the manager and deal with player s and aquistions. Oh wait I forgot. No one knows more about baseball than loria. There are Gms and managers that have forgotten more about baseball then Loria knows.

wiseup: Lorias Philosophy is that of a noted politician. I like to fire people.

This is all on BUD SELIG. Ownership goes to his 'friends'. Look at his track record: McCourts. Wilpons! Angelos (for years). Cheapo Walmart CEO in Kansas City! Cheapo Pittsburgh owner! MLB is a monopoly run by hacks like Selig who hire cronies like Torre. That's why umpires are mediocre and replays are limited; why there's a DH in one league and not the other.
