Albert Pujols And Miami Marlins Might Just Be A Match

In this post I am going to tell you very very little. I feel like I should get that out of the way here, in the beginning, so you can choose whether or not to read the rest. Okay. If you're still here, the news is that the Miami Marlins have offered Albert Pujols a ten-year contract. They have not offered to include a no-trade clause, per team policy, but a ten-year contract offer is a ten-year contract offer, and it's an offer for a lot of money, too.

Pujols hasn't made a decision yet, obviously. He's giving the Cardinals a chance to respond, as he and his agent should, and we'll see where things go from here. But the current perception? From Joe Capozzi:

Growing buzz in lobby that #Marlins will emerge as winner Albert Pujols derby. Nothing final yet but fish r favorites, accd 2 lobby walkers

That is a very subjective tweet. Capozzi deduces that people in a hotel think the Marlins are the favorites to sign Albert Pujols. There's nothing scientific about it. But take a step back and think about where we are.

  • Albert Pujols is a free agent
  • The Marlins might be the favorites to sign him
  • That doesn't sound ridiculous

That's ridiculous!

This offseason has been happening so fast that I don't think any of us truly understand and appreciate what the Marlins have done to themselves.
