Pujols And Marlins
December 6, 2011 by staff
Pujols And Marlins, The Miami Marlins are intent on altering the direction of their franchise, and took the largest step in that direction late Monday night by offering Albert Pujols a 10-year contract, according to two officials with direct knowledge of the negotiations.
The officials could not comment on the negotiations because they are ongoing.Albert Pujols reportedly received a 10-year contract offer from the Miami Marlins.The offer is worth in excess of $200 million, which is more than the nine-year, $195 million deal the Cardinals offered Pujols at the outset of the 2011 season.
The Marlins’ offer is an increase over their previous nine-year offer.
The Cardinals have scheduled a meeting Tuesday afternoon with Pujols’ camp, in which they could increase their last offer. They have made it clear they want to keep Pujols. But it’s not known how willing they are to budge from the original offer of nine years for around $195 million.
The Chicago Cubs are also in the Pujols sweepstakes. General manager Theo Epstein declined to confirm the Cubs made an offer, but the two sides have held a meeting.
The Marlins have spent $133 million on free agent acquistions already this winter, more than the combined total of every other team.
