It always better to treat the cause (Guillen) not the symptom (Pierre).

Since I've never been a Guillen fan, maybe Marlins owner Jeff Loria is once again my potential savior. You will recall the "trade" rumor of Guillen to the Marlins with the Sox requesting Logan Morrison (not Mike Stanton as first reported).

It's been reported that Loria still wants Guillen to manage his team, if not for this season, then for the 2012 season and the opening of the Marlins new stadium. A Latin manager with a World Series ring and Guillen's showmanship would be very appealing to the Latin contingency in Miami. This would put more fans in the seats and more money in Loria's pockets.

Since the Sox have picked up Guillen's option for 2012, perhaps Loria renews talks with the Sox as his Marlins now reside in last place. Reinsdorf is already on record stating he would move any person he's ever had (except Michael Jordan) for the right return. Morrison has performed very well this year and may be an impractical return for Guillen now and I don't know if the Sox have another player(s) in mind.

But it seems Loria is an impulsive person who desperately wants to reverse his team's fortunes while also improving his personal fortune. And desperate people can do strange things.

In Loria's case, I hope it happens ASAP.

Loria may be impulsive, but he's not THAT stupid to trade Logan Morrison for Ozzie Guillen. I realize the Marlins haven't been happy with Morrison's tweeting and criticism of the organization, but you don't trade a 23-year-old up-and-coming star for a manager, no matter how impactful you think that manager could be.

I'm a defender of Guillen, but if the Marlins were willing to trade Morrison for a manager I'd support the trade in a heartbeat. The Sox would be stupid to not take it.

As I said:

"...Morrison has performed very well this year and may be an impractical return for Guillen now..."
