11:14 AM ET 02.16 | Jose Reyes, like his former Marlins teammates Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle, harboured some sour feelings over the flip flop in the franchise direction in Florida that precipitated the team dumping its high priced superstars. "I was shocked, Jeffrey Loria (Marlins owner) always said go get a nice home here, he said we'd never be traded here, he called my agent and told him to tell me to get a nice home," Reyes said as he joined the Jays at spring training. "That was four days before the trade . . . we were out for a dinner in New York, and we were picking up some kind of award there. Then I went on vacation with my wife and two days later I get a phone call and I found out about the trade . . . that was crazy."

OK, Jose, are you the village idiot or what? If you wanted a no trade deal you should have asked for it in that contract.....You had all the cards.

Here in South Florida, Loria is a four-letter word.

Reyes is thinking - "I got all this money I don't deserve, and I bought a mansion in Miami. Ooh, I'm so mad."
What a tool.

w8iseup: Jose, you went from a losing team with a loser of an owner to what should be a contending team.

He told them he was a really good, superstar-caliber player. Even Steven.

Who in their right mind would trust anything Loria says??? As always, consider the source.
