Albert Pujols Not Signing With Miami Marlins, According To Reports

Free agent first baseman Albert Pujols will not be signing with the Miami Marlins, according to reports. The Marlins have been in heavy negotiations with the prized first baseman, but it does not appear that he will be signing in Miami according to Jerry Crasnick.

Source says Pujols continues to negotiate with clubs other than Cardinals. But Albert will not be going to Florida. The development obviously increases the likelihood that Pujols will return to St. Louis, though. One thing clear at moment: Marlins are out on Albert Pujols. We'll find out soon exactly how and why it transpired.

The Marlins had made a substantial offer to Pujols, reportedly offering him a massive 10-year contract. It was also reported earlier that if the Marlins signed Mark Buehrle they would break off their pursuit of Pujols.
