According to columnist Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Marlins’ higher-ups have intentionally gone into hiding since executing the organization’s latest major firesale:
Besides forbidding president David Samson from doing his radio show, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria also told Samson that he can no longer do interviews. That’s short-sighted, because Samson made himself more accountable and accessible than many team presidents, even amid unpopular decisions made solely by Loria. Loria, by the way, has refused to speak to the media since mid-November.
Samson has traditionally made weekly appearances on 790 The Ticket’s “Dan Le Batard Show” in Miami, discussing club matters and taking questions from callers. But that apparently won’t be happening in the future.
Must be nice to get hundreds of millions of dollars from taxpayers and then never have to answer to ‘em.
