Marlins Make 10 Year Offer to Albert Pujols

Many people scoffed at the notion that the new look Miami Marlins were going to make the biggest splash this offseason.  Armed with a new stadium in little Havana, new uniforms, and new branding as ‘Latin America’s team,’ the Marlins are now going after the biggest fish in the free agent pond.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Miami has made a ten year offer to Albert Pujols.  No monetary figures have been mentioned, but it’s a year more than the Cardinals offered before the start of the 2011 season.

These are definitely not your fathers Marlins who held fire sales after their World Series titles in 1997 and 2003.  The ownership group and front office know that in a city like Miami stars put butts in the seats.  Miami has already spent a reported $133 million dollars on Jose Reyes and Heath Bell.

People shouldn’t discount Pujols’s heritage as a major factor in his decision.  With Ozzie Guillen managing, the Marlins clubhouse is going to be the most Latin American friendly in all of Major League Baseball.

The Cubs are the other frontrunner in the Pujols sweepstakes, but mark my words; ‘The Machine will be taking his talents to South Beach.’
