Michael Hill, who's served as the Marlins' vice-president and GM since 2007, has been promoted to president of baseball operations.

As Clark Spencer noted on Twitter, Loria didn't show up for the press conference announcing the latest round of changes.

That's especially the case considering the continued presence of the deliriously unpopular Loria.
