Albert Pujols Update: Marlins Offer To Pujols Is Worth Less Than $200 Million

At this point, it's becoming pretty clear that the Miami Marlins are a very legitimate threat to pry first baseman Albert Pujols away from the St. Louis Cardinals. The team has been aggressive as it tries to improve while going into a new stadium next season. But the team's current offer to Pujols is worth less than $200 million, according to Joe Capozzi of The Palm Beach Post.

It had previously been reported that the Marlins had extended an offer worth roughly $225 million to Pujols, but it appears that those had estimated high on the actual offer. Capozzi, a Marlins beat writer, was able to confirm that the team made an offer, but his sources say that it's for less than $200 million.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal has reported that the Marlins offered Pujols a nine-year contract, but Capozzi couldn't deny or confirm that report.
