MLB Free Agent Rumors: Marlins Reportedly Make 'Substantial' Offers To Albert Pujols And Jose Reyes

Now wouldn’t that be something. The Miami Marlins, yes that’s right, the Marlins, may just be legitimate contenders in the Albert Pujols Sweepstakes after all. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Marlins made a serious offer to the future Hall of Fame slugger after meeting with him this week. According to Rosenthal, the Marlins also are pursuing Jose Reyes as well.

Wow, wow, wow! What a way to open a new ball park that would be. After years of underspending on player salaries, it appears like the Marlins are serious about acquiring some top-shelf talent to draw fans to the new stadium set to open for the 2012 season. Would Pujols really consider going from a contender like St. Louis to an organization that’s languished for the vast majority of its existence? Perhaps so considering he just won a World Series ring. As for Reyes, it’s not like the Mets were perennial contenders during his time there. If the money’s right, why not head to South Florida? Not exactly a terrible destination if you’re young, rich and a Spanish speaking ball player.

Stay tuned for more developments on the MLB Free Agency front as they become available.
