MIAMI -

A negative article in a Dominican Republic newspaper brought Marlins star Hanley Ramirez to Twitter to respond.

Franklin Mirabel wrote in "Hoy" that Ramirez's friendship with Jose Reyes will inevitably be damaged. He also criticizes Ramirez for not taking a leadership role with the Marlins.

Ramirez’s response via Twitter (translated from Spanish): ”Folks, via this medium I want to let everyone know that what came out in the newspaper Hoy about me, the team and Guillen is a lie.”

He also wrote: "Trying to soil my image with lies. Third base with the Marlins forever baby."
