MLB News: Florida Marlins Offer Albert Pujols 10 Year Deal
In what can only be described as “absurd,” the Miami Marlins are apparently upping their ante to get baseball’s prized free agent, Albert Pujols. After already nailing down former New York Mets SS Jose Reyes, they have now reportedly added another year to their offer for Pujols.
According to Jon Heyman of SI.com, they have now thrown out a 10-year contract to him.
“Hearing #Marlins boosted offer to pujols to 10 years, matching arod’s in length. they are obvs pushing hard,” Heyman tweets.
We have no idea what the money situation in the contract is like, but we don’t really care either. You’re offering 10 years to a guy who will be 32-years old by the time spring training rolls around? You have to be kidding.
You never know what’s going to happen, but what if this guy starts breaking down around 35 or 36. You’ll be stuck with an overpriced waste of space for a good seven years!
Well, anyway, have fun with that, Miami.
