PLAYERS: Jeffrey Loria
TEAMS: Miami Marlins
Jeffrey Loria's open letter to Marlins fans, and his response a couple of days later, has drawn the scorn of fans of all teams across baseball. One of the players most affected by Loria's rantings has been new Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes, who was dealt to Toronto from Miami in the megadeal between the teams just one year after signing in Miami as a free agent. Last month, Reyes claimed that Loria told him to buy a house in Miami the day before the trade went down. Loria (of course) refuted those claims, but Reyes is on the offensive again. In an interview with the New York Post, Reyes went off (again) on his former team and boss. “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 continued: “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.

Back and forth we go: Jose Reyes calls Jeffrey Loria a big fat liar

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...

Jeffrey Loria and Hoof in Mouth Disease

Contrary to popular belief, most writers covering sports do not enjoy writing articles month after month, year after year, in which they report nothing but negativity around this facet or that. In all honesty, it’s tiresome. At the same time, those of us that spend a great deal of time watching over teams, clubs, and leagues, are passionate and actively engaged in wanting to see...

Tino Martinez eager for new role with Marlins

There was a time when Tino Martinez was certain that he would never coach. It's not that he didn't want to, necessarily. It was more that the grind of baseball - travel, long days, late nights, time away from the family - had taken its toll over the course of 16 seasons in the major leagues. ''I said, `Never again,''' Martinez said. ''When I...

Former Met Jose Reyes Calls Marlins Owner a Liar

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...

30-1 MLB countdown previews: #29 Marlins

According to many people, the Miami Marlins had the worst off season in the history of MLB. It is certainly a stark contrast from last off season where many thought the Marlins bought themselves a pennant. One thing the Marlins have been known for is having a good fire sale, which started last season when they traded Hanley Ramirez, Omar Infante, Anibal Sanchez, Edwin Mujica, and...

Even in spring, not much hope for Astros, Marlins

Spring training is usually a time of hope. Unless you're the Houston Astros. Or the Miami Marlins. With no-name rosters and in the midst of massive rebuilding jobs, these teams are more likely to be remembered as among the worst in recent years than make any sort of run for the playoffs. Astros pitcher Lucas Harrell isn't fazed by the low expectations, even though Houston...
