08:17 AM ET 10.07 | We hear that beyond making decisions about what free agents to pursue, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria's involvement in personnel has been so extensive that it even included sending multiple players to the minors. But there's no indication that Loria will pull back on his involvement in baseball decisions.

Loria is to baseball as Jones is to the NFL. As long as both of them think they know more than anybody else and don't step back and let somebody else run their teams both will continue to struggle.

I think we have had this thread a few times lately. The Miami Herald doesn't like the way the owner of the Marlins runs the team.

Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while.
Those two guys got lucky with a couple of early decisions and now think they are invincible.
The teams' track records say otherwise.
