UPDATE: Jon Heyman reports that the Marlins offer is “believed to be $200-220M, no more,” and that it is merely pennies ahead of the Cardinals offer, if that. You’d have to think that the Marlins would have to clearly best the Cardinals’ offer to lure Pujols away.
8:57 AM: Albert Pujols‘ flirtation with the Miami Marlins may be over. Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch writes that the Cardinals’ newest offer to Albert Pujols is believed to be in the range of $220 million over 10 years.
It’s hard to see what this offer lacks compared to what the Marlins are offering. The Cards obviously don’t need to consider a no-trade clause given Pujols’ 5-10 rights.
This may keep El Hombre where, quite frankly, everyone has to agree he belongs. Doesn’t it?
