Sources say no move yet on Marlins’ Guillen

MIAMI (MCT) — Will Jeffrey Loria fire Ozzie Guillen?

Only Loria knows. As Guillen left on a vacation to Spain after the Marlins concluded a dismal last-place season, an ESPN reporter Thursday wrote on Twitter that the Marlins were “aggressively” searching for a replacement.

“Marlins are aggressively seeking a replacement for Ozzie Guillen,” was the tweet from ESPN’s Buster Olney.

That report was not confirmed by any other media outlet.

According to Miami Herald sources, Loria is mulling a decision on whether to fire Guillen. It was Loria who not only traded two minor-league players to the Chicago White Sox to obtain Guillen, but also then gave him a team-record four-year deal worth $10 million.

Loria commanded a year ago that Guillen be hired.

If Loria decides to fire Guillen after one season, just as he did current New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi in 2006 — only one year into a three-year deal that he orchestrated — the Marlins would still owe Guillen $7.5 million.

According to sources, this is all Loria’s call.

The Marlins’ front office has been kept entirely “out of the loop,” according to multiple sources, with regards to Guillen’s future with the team.
