C.J. Wilson Fielding Number Of Offers

Earlier Sunday, we suggested that the Washington Nationals might be the favorites to sign free agent starter C.J. Wilson, because Wilson is a target of theirs, and they're more willing to spend big than some other teams are. But maybe that's not quite so true. According to Jon Heyman, the Nationals currently see Wilson as being overpriced, and according to William Ladson, the Nationals have floated an offer to free agent starter Mark Buehrle.

But that isn't to say that Wilson isn't generating a lot of interest. Here's this, from Jon Morosi:

C.J. Wilson has offers from #Angels, #Marlins and two other clubs

Now, Wilson is said to be seeking a six-year contract worth at least $100 million. It's unknown whether any of the current offers are quite that large. I'm going to guess that the answer is no, but I don't have any inside information, and wherever things might be now, they could intensify quickly. It will be interesting to see if Wilson holds off until after Buehrle signs somewhere, just to maximize interest. But you could say the same thing the other way around, and somebody has to sign first.

The Marlins. Geez.
