Eventually the whole “he said, she said” charade that is going on between Jose Reyes and Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria will fizzle out, but for now it would appear that Reyes is not content to just let it go. Earlier this month, Reyes claimed Loria encouraged him to buy a home in Miami just days before trading him to the Toronto Blue Jays. Loria fired back by saying that Reyes was lying, and now Reyes is saying that Loria is lying by calling him a liar. Not only does Reyes insist Loria told him to buy a house days before the trade, but he says the owner also said it during the season as well. According to Reyes, his agent Peter Greenberg was a witness. “He did it during the season, too: ‘Tell Jose to get a nice place in Miami, a good house,’” Reyes said. “He always told me that, me and Peter. I don’t know why he said he didn’t say that.” Reyes told the NY Post on Thursday: “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?” In addition, Reyes said that Loria’s claim that he informed Greenberg that Reyes was going to be traded to make sure he didn’t buy a house in Miami is false. “No. Peter didn’tknow that [Loria] was going o trade me,” Reyes said. “That’s a lie. Nobody knew. So I don’t know where that came from. You guys can talk to Peter and ask Peter. That trade took everybody by surprise. I was on vacation. Peter wasn’t even the one to tell me I got traded.” Regardless of who is telling the truth, Reyes needs to get over it and stop entertaining questions about it. He’s a professional athlete, and professional sports are a cut-throat business. It’s time to accept the fact that he is a Blue Jay and stop dwelling on the past.
