Why Loria isn't listening to Beinfest

07:19 AM ET 09.23 | Looking for an example of the peculiar way Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is operating these days? 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. ... Why is Loria no longer listening to Beinfest nearly as much? Because when Beinfest doesn't like Loria's personnel ideas, Beinfest tells him. And an associate said Loria doesn't like his ideas being rejected and will do what he wants anyway.

I don't care what Beinfest has to say, either.

Because , as we learned yesterday, someone has his ear and apparently is not giving it back. It is in a jar in Miami.

Getting weary of threads about an irrelevant team and its obnoxious owner.
Who cares?

Dennis Hopper died before he could give the ear back.

Dang, that didn't work. Tried figuring out the code. Here's a link to his twin.

F-It. They must not be allowing links to pictures. They all work fine when I try them here.

Maybe that is why he sold off his team and is reportedly going to make a $98 million profit this year. Ransom money to buy it back.
