MLB Thread [2019 Season]
Reyes to Miami

Pujols to Miami?

It looks like the Miami sports community has learned from its mistakes; after assuming that signing all the best players would win them a championship in basketball, Miami has taken a different route with the Marlins and will be signing all the best players to win them a championship in baseball. The play-by-play, from birther John Heyman:

hearing #Marlins boosted offer to pujols to 10 years, matching arod’s in length. they are obvs pushing hard.

everybody should have been convinced after reyes for $106M, but this is no publicity stunt by #marlins. #pujols, #perfect10

#marlins strong pursuit of pujols realistically has winnowed the field for pujols to them and incumbent #cardinals.

Cardinals have been resistant to upgrade pujols bid. With marlins strong push, they have tough decision to make.

Yes, they do, almost as tough a decision as whether or not to write the phrase “winnowed the field” anywhere on your Twitter.

As Heyman notes, this 10-year offer to the secretly-31-and-a-half-year old Pujols comes on the heels of the 6-year, 106 million deal for Jose Reyes, so we need to go ahead and get comfortable with the Miami Marlins being a thing … at least a bloated, gangly thing that smells like a National Leagues Red Sox and looks hilarious finishing behind Aramis Ramirez (or whoever) and the Phillies next season.

:lol :lol

Apparently there are 3 teams that have made offers to Pujols.

STL, Miami and the Angels

NiCK (Crush) 12-07-2011 12:25 AM

A 10 year offer is just absolutely insane.

sean52692 12-07-2011 01:07 AM

Consensus of most baseball people is that Marlins will end up w/ a significantly better offer on the table; but Pujols will resign w/Cards
3 minutes ago

Yeah, a 10 year offer probably won't be worth it in the end.

sdaltons 12-07-2011 08:18 AM

i just want this pujols shit to end already

as a cardinals fan, if 10 years is what it takes, i hope he leaves. i started looking at some of the plan-b options and i think they can build a much better team that way.

SonofSuns34 12-07-2011 08:38 AM

10 years is a crazy offer, St Louis wants him bad, but Miami is pushing for him not only because he is amazingly consistent, but for the demographics of their region as well... My team won't even sign J Roll for 5 years...

mja271 12-07-2011 11:56 AM

10 years is just a bad deal anyway you slice it. He'd be 41 at deals end. And although he's an amazing player and very consistent, he's subtly dropped in production the last few years, and this past season, although still really good, was his worst of his career. I hope he stays with Stl., but they shouldn't go 10 years.

Mitch 12-07-2011 12:46 PM

Seeing Reyes in a Marlins uniform is making me sick. (and those uniforms are fucking hideous, too)

mja271 12-08-2011 10:12 AM

Albert to the Angels. 10 years, ~$250 Million. Wow.

NiCK (Crush) 12-08-2011 10:16 AM

I hope that means Mark Trumbo is available... Tribe needs a 1B bat.

sdaltons 12-08-2011 10:18 AM

i'd say he just made about 3,000,000 enemies lol

NiCK (Crush) 12-08-2011 10:20 AM

I wonder how he'll fair in the AL. His numbers against the Tribe are surprisingly not that great.

roshea999 12-08-2011 11:00 AM

That's 68,450 dollars a day for ten years.


SonofSuns34 12-08-2011 11:42 AM

that's a little more then I make in a whole year... jesus christ

mja271 12-08-2011 12:27 PM

Lol yup me too, I'm going to be making 62k next year. Albert will wake up, go to bed, and make more money than me. Hot damn.

Josh.0 12-08-2011 01:50 PM

What a stupid deal.

First off, there's no way the guy is 32. Most people think he's about 35 or 36. Can you imagine paying $25 million a year to a guy who is 42, 43, 44, 45 and/or 46?

Have fun eating shit in a couple years, Anaheim! Look at how injury prone and downtrodden A-Rod is already!

Caveat Emperor 12-08-2011 02:10 PM

I just think it's mildly ironic that a guy who I'm convinced sold his soul to Satan somewhere around Round 11 of the 1999 draft is going to play for the Angels.

I've seen other estimates as high as 36. Then, there's [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]


The total dollars are in dispute, depending on whom you believe, but the number of years offered is not. Nine years. That’s insanity, especially since, like a lot of teams, the Marlins believe Pujols to be older than the 31 he claims to be.
But I suppose you know more about Albert Pujols than MLB front offices because - well - you're from St. Louis!
