Putting the rumors to rest
- Updated: September 22, 2012
Let the garage sale continue as we approach the final weeks of a season that couldn’t come any faster. Rumors are flying around once again that president of operations Larry Beinfest is going to be fired at the end of the season.
Is this a good move for the Marlins and their fans to see the man whom many will blame for driving the team to the ground year after year? Only time will tell. But before we start celebrating in the streets that we got rid of Beinfest we have to confirm the facts.
USA Today reported that Beinfest will be fired before the end of the season and replaced by Dan Jennings ,assistant general manager, or Michael Hill, general manager.
So by the looks of it the men in charged of the Marlins are staying loyal to their staff.
Next rumor I have been seeing going around is the job security of manager Ozzie Guillen.
Guillen has not done what we have seen him do in Chicago for eight years. He had those famous words come out of his mouth during the beginning of the year and has led a team from first to last place in the same season.
But he is not the first manager to do that nor will he be the last. For all the horrible moments we have had as Marlins fans Guillen at least deserves another year. The team reflects the manager and what we see on the field is not what we deserve.
The players themselves have fallen short of expectations as well with injuries, trades, and a lack of consistency.
This thought of bringing Mike Lowell to be the next manager might be little too crazy. I love the man for everything he did for the organization and being a local talent but he is not the answer at the manager spot.
Lowell is a great guy but with no experience I wouldn’t be able to see him handle different egos in one clubhouse.
We can just look on hope to end the season on a positive note and what we have on paper we should have a solid group coming back.
Beinfest lives on to see another season and Guillen gets one more chance.
