08:27 AM ET 09.22 | An example of the peculiar way Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is doing business: When Larry Beinfest, the president of baseball operations, suggested last month that the Marlins promote second baseman Derek Dietrich in September, Loria said no. Loria is annoyed that Dietrich accused former first base coach Tino Martinez - Loria's hand-picked choice -- of abusive behavior. But when assistant GM Dan Jennings then recommended to Loria that Dietrich be promoted, Loria changed his mind and gave the OK -- a point that became moot when Dietrich suffered an oblique injury before his promotion. Among those who have Loria's ear: Jennings, vice president/player development Marty Scott and agent Scott Boras (primarily concerning how to handle star client Jose Fernandez). Why is Loria no longer listening to Beinfest nearly as much? Because when Beinfest doesn't like Loria's personnel ideas, Beinfest tells him.
