Alomar, sent to the New York Mets in an eight-player trade last December, said Wednesday that the Indians weren't up front with him before making the deal.
"They lied to me, it is as simple as that," Alomar said. "If you are a man, you should tell a man the truth to his face."
Alomar's comments came before he faced the Indians for the first time since being traded, in Wednesday's exhibition game at Chain of Lakes Park.
Alomar said he met with Indians general manager Mark Shapiro in October shortly after Cleveland was eliminated in five games by Seattle in the AL playoffs.
Shapiro told Alomar that the Indians' roster would be undergoing some major changes, and asked the 12-time All-Star about his desire to be part of the rebuilding.
"He asked if I would be happy with younger players," Alomar said. "I said yes. I knew it was going to be a young and talented team and wanted to be part of it. In the end it didn't matter."
Shapiro, who replaced John Hart as Cleveland's GM at the end of last season, said he never deceived Alomar.
"I'm sorry Robbie is hurt and feels betrayed, but you can't go back and change history," Shapiro said. "I clearly stated to him that I could not guarantee anything. People who guarantee anything in this game set themselves up to be a liar."
Shapiro said owner Larry Dolan's desire to cut payroll and the Mets' offer were key factors in completing the deal that sent Alomar and two minor leaguers to New York for outfielder Matt Lawton, reliever Jarrod Riggan and minor leaguers Alex Escobar, Billy Traber and Earl Snyder.
On Monday, Escobar tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee when he crashed into a fence making a catch at Bradenton. Escobar will have reconstructive surgery and miss the entire season.
"We would not have made the trade without getting Escobar," Shapiro said. "And if we were not cutting payroll or at least not raising it, we would not have made the trade, either."
Shapiro said he would welcome the chance to talk with Alomar.
"I called him once, but he gets a lot of calls from a lot of people and I have not talked to him," Shapiro said. "I called him when the trade was made. I wanted to tell him, instead of him hearing it from the media.
"He said he was shocked, but spoke positively. He said he enjoyed playing in Cleveland and would miss it. I have not spoken with him since."
Alomar said it did not take long for him to accept being sent to a new team.
"As soon as you put the new uniform on, that's it," he said. "I'm happy to be a Met. I had a lot of fun in Cleveland. For three years, I gave everything I had and that's why I feel good about it. The only thing I am disappointed about the way I was told."
Alomar exchanged warm greetings with several Indians and waved to fans in the stands when he emerged from the Mets' clubhouse.
"Hey there, Robo. Great to see you. How are you?" said Cleveland first baseman Jim Thome, who was the first Indians player to meet Alomar. The two hugged and chatted for a moment -- a scene that was repeated with other Indians later during pregame warmups.
At the time, Shapiro was at another field, watching Cleveland play Kansas City in a "B" game.
"I only have good things to say about Roberto Alomar," Shapiro said. "He's one of the greatest to play the game. It is an honor to still watch him play and it will be an honor to watch him go into the Hall of Fame."
