Derek Jeter Has Already Begun Clearing Out Marlins' Front Office

Derek Jeter Has Already Begun Clearing Out Marlins' Front Office”

Prospective Miami Marlins boss Derek Jeter has asked the outgoing president of the team to fire four baseball luminaries who serve as special assistants, the Miami Herald has reported, citing two Major League Baseball sources.

McKeon managed the Marlins when they won the World Series in 2003 and for the past 12 seasons has been a special assistant to owner Jeffrey Loria.

Dawson and Perez have long held positions as special assistants - Dawson since 2000 and Perez since 1993, the team's first season. Jeter asked Samson, according to the Miami Herlad, to inform the quartet that Jeter will not be keeping them on board. As an odd twist, Samson has been informed he won't be retained by the new ownership. He has been a special assistant since 2005. These firings will have little no to impact on day-to-day team operations, though further front-office changes are possible. McKeon was the manager of that 2003 Marlins team and Conine batted.333 in the World Series win over the Yankees as a DH and left fielder. Both Dawson and Perez are in the Hall of Fame.

Perez's playing career ended before the Marlins came into existence, but through the years has worked for the team in a variety of roles, including manager in 2001.

It appears Jeter and Sherman are confident they'll receive the necessary votes as they are already preparing to remove four key Marlins' personnel of the previous regime.

On Aug. 11, Jackson reported Loria had agreed to sell the franchise to a group of investors that includes Jeter, businessman Bruce Sherman and Michael Jordan, among others, for $1.2 billion.
