Jose Reyes Says Jeff Loria Is Lying
You would think that the whole Jeff Loria told Jose Reyes to buy a house in Miami thing would have died by now, but nope, it isnt. After Reyes said Loria gave him such advice despite knowing hed be traded, and after Loria denied that he did it, Reyes tells the New York Post that Loria is lying, and that his agent Peter Greenberg can vouch:
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 dont know why he said he didnt say that. Reyes continued: You can ask Peter if Im a liar. Two people are better than one.I dont have to lie about that. He traded me, thats fine with me. Just be real with me. Be honest. Dont tell me to buy a house and get a nice place for my family and stuff when you [know] youre going to trade me. Why [did] you do that?
