Jose Reyes says he hasn't heard from new teammate Hanley Ramirez since signing a $106 million, six-year deal last week with the Miami Marlins.
There has been no phone call, text message or Christmas card from his pal and fellow Dominican.
Meanwhile, speculation persists that Ramirez is unhappy about being supplanted at shortstop.
Reyes said it won't be a problem, because he and Ramirez both want to win.
With Reyes at shortstop and Ramirez at third, the Marlins become stronger defensively at both positions, and more potent offensively. Reyes hit .337 with the New York Mets this year to win the NL batting title, and Ramirez — a career .306 hitter — was the 2009 batting champ.
