withleather gave me a legitimate LOL today.

[Only registered users can see links.]

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.

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

STL, Miami and the Angels

A 10 year offer is just absolutely insane.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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

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

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!

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.

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!
