Report: Marlins’ offer to Albert Pujols tops $200 million

Bob Nightengale of USA Today has some specifics on the Marlins’ 10-year offer to Albert Pujols, reporting that the proposal is “in excess of $200 million.”

Last week when the Marlins reportedly made a nine-year offer to Pujols it was said to be for significantly less than the $200 million or so the Cardials offered him earlier this year.

Obviously a 10-year offer to Pujols should be expected to top $200 million–anything less than $20 million per season would seem sort of silly–but if nothing else this shows once again how serious the Marlins are.

And if the two sides are truly talking about no-trade clauses that suggests they’re fairly deep into negotiations.
