08:48 AM ET 10.06 | We hear Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria remains conflicted about whether to dump manager Ozzie Guillen. Throughout the organization, there's unhappiness with the not-serious-enough culture Guillen has fostered in the clubhouse. But associates say Loria has gone back and forth about whether to pull the plug, with three years and $7.5 million left on Guillen's contract. He continues to mull potential replacements in the event he fires him.

How is this a hard decision? The guy didn't deliver with a talented team and when you factor in all the stupid **** that comes out of his mouth, its a no brainer!

It never ceases to amaze me when teams get upset/surprised when a guy behaves exactly the way he always has. It's not like Guillen just started acting like this. They knew what they were getting.

The Marlins owner is a nutcase. Guillen has proven himself to be a very good manager.
