Albert Pujols Still Weighing Three Huge Offers?

Word just came down that the Miami Marlins - an ultra-aggressive suitor - are out of the running for Albert Pujols, despite having offered him a ten-year contract worth well more than $200 million. That seems to pave the way for Pujols to re-sign with the St. Louis Cardinals, right? Because the race was down to the Marlins and the Cardinals?

You fool. You naive, ignorant fool.

Confirmed @JCrasnick: The Pujols' camp has informed the #Marlins they are out. but Pujols still has 3 offers in excess of $200 million.

Who the hell even knows anymore. We know that the Cardinals have extended to Pujols one big offer, of either nine or ten years in length. The Angels are rumored to have crept into the picture, although it doesn't seem like they would compete with the Cardinals. The Cubs have been involved and might still be involved, but it doesn't seem like they would compete with the Cardinals. So. Bob Nightengale says Pujols is still looking at three enormous offers, even with the Marlins out. He might not be right. He might be right.

The Cardinals definitely feel like the favorites. Pujols, obviously, has strong ties, and there's the familiarity factor. Yesterday, the Marlins looked like the Cardinals' only serious competition, and now the Marlins are out. But. But?
