6. Over/under 1 month before we hear the first Loria meddlesome story of the season?
Ehsan Kassim: Under, just because I don’t trust the guy to stay out of his own way.
Chris Logel: Believe it or not I am taking the over on this question. I think the Marlins are going to get off to a hot start the first month before cooling considerably. If the Marlins are winning, Loria will stay quiet.
Geoff Parkins: Over. The media’s almost giddy with the “Hey…check out the Marlins!” meme right now. They’ll leave Loria alone until at least June. Samson…no bet. He’ll remain a punching bag. Seriously…he’s been put in charge of worrying about game duration?
David Polakoff: Over. I don’t think we hear one until next offseason.
Andy Salgado: No response.
Placido Estevez: Loria will give the new management team this one season to handle things before he starts giving them “suggestions” again next season.
Esteban Bailey: Over 10000
Daniel Zylberkan: Over. He seems to be committed to relinquishing baseball operations (I hope for us all)
