If you thought Hanley Ramirez being deferred to third base with the arrival of Jose Reyes in Miami caused a rift between the two, you thought wrong.

Even though the incumbent Ramirez originally expressed some dismay about being forced out of the starting shortstop role, the left side of the Marlins infield has been getting along just fine now that spring training is in full swing. In fact, the two have even become video-game buddies. At the end of most days, both All-Stars have been going to one of their apartments and firing up the PlayStation.

“The machine doesn’t allow us to play the same team, so I play with Boston, he plays with the Phillies,” Reyes said Thursday.

“Me and Hanley have a very good relationship and now that we’re on the same team, it’s even better.”

Well, as long as their games don’t end with one of them throwing the controller across the room and wanting to wring the other’s neck out — like I do when I play “Call of Duty” — this can’t be a bad thing at all. That’s such an Ozzie Guillen thing to do, anyway.
