    Marlins make Pujols 10-yr offer

    No details on the dollar value but it sounds like its very close between the Marlins and the Cards.

    Idiotic. Cards should let him go.

    Re: Marlins make Pujols 10-yr offer

    Marlins will dig their own grave if they do that. The only way it makes sense is to give him partial ownership near the end of his deal. I really don't want the Cards signing him for $20 mil a year for 10 years. Who knows what he will be doing in 8 years. Playing at a high level is most likely not one of them.

    Re: Marlins make Pujols 10-yr offer

    Rumor is they want to have a payroll around $100 million. With the contracts of Pujols, Reyes, and Bell, along with the players under current contract, they aren't going to have enough money for good starting pitching. And in a division with the Phillies and Braves, you are going to need good starting pitching to compete.

    Agreed. I wasn't comfortable with the Cards offering the report $200mil for 9 years. It's a potentially organization crippling contract and this offer is beyond stupid. I pray that the Cards don't match it.

    Thanks for the titles and the memories Albert.

    That will be one heck of a lineup...even without Albert they will score runs! Their pitching isn't Phillies-level...but it is better than average already...especially if Johnson returns healthy!

    Whats funny is that this sets the market for Fielder as well. Its going to be expensive to get either one.

    I knew someone who **** the bed, I guess I didn't realize it would be the Marlins. They are trying to go retro-'97 on us.

    I was desperately hoping the Cubs didn't get Pujols because I figured they'd have to beat the Cards offer which seemed bordering on ridiculous already.

    If Pujols goes to Miami it could be a blessing in disguise for the Cards. It'd suck to lose him, but you likely got all his best years at a reasonable salary already.

    If Pujols goes to Miami, rumor is the Cubs might go after Gaby Sanchez, which makes sense. Would the Cards just go with Berkman at first?

    Completely agree. I LOVE the Cardinals, but 10 years is idiotic.

    Craig in right. Wouldn't be bad. They could go after a big time starter after this season.

    Please don't overextend on Pujols.....PLEASE
