Liar, liar pants on fire; everyone remembers how that childish saying goes.  At this point, it seems that former Met Jose Reyes and Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria are saying that to each other. After signing his mega-deal with the Marlins in the 2012 off-season, Reyes was traded to the Blue Jays after Miami’s disappointing season.  The deal came to a shock to Reyes who claimed that Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria urged him to buy a house in Miami just a few days before trading him. Earlier this week, Loria denied Reyes’ claim saying that he never urged Reyes to buy a house in South Florida and even gave Reyes and his reps the heads-up before the trade to Toronto.  Reyes came out Friday and said that this was not true: “He did it during the season, too: ‘Tell Jose to get a nice place in Miami, a good house,’ ” Reyes said via the NY Post. “He always told me that, me and Peter [Greenberg]. I don’t know why he said he didn’t say that.  You can ask Peter if I’m a liar. Two people are better than one.I don’t have to lie about that. He traded me, that’s fine with me. Just be real with me. Be honest. Don’t tell me to buy a house and get a nice place for my family and stuff when you [know] you’re going to trade me. Why [did] you do that?” After Loria allegedly urged Reyes to buy a home Reyes said that he and his family actually agreed on a price for a home in the Coconut Grove area of Miami. Reyes would continue to call Loria’s remarks lies.  Loria said that he had given Reyes’ agent Peter Greenberg advanced warning of the trade but Reyes simply remarked “That’s a lie.” Greenberg said in a phone interview that Loria did consistently urge Reyes to buy a house in Florida and that Loria said he would never trade Reyes because he was “his favorite player in the game.” Greenberg also confirmed that he did receive advanced notice about the trade but said that it was less than 24 hours before the details of the trade were released. Reyes would go on to say that being in Toronto feels like home to him, but would also say he is hesitant to buy a house in Toronto. For Reyes’ sake, he should hope Loria doesn’t become a real estate agent in Toronto.  He almost convinced Reyes to buy a home once; maybe he could do it again.
