Pujols, who has played his entire career with the St. Louis Cardinals, previously rejected a 9-year $200M contract offer from the Cardinals, but building controversy about his age has seemingly dulled the market for his skills, leaving the Cardinals offer as the top one available.

The Marlins previously offered Pujols a 9-year contract worth less than $200M, but after suddenly signing top shortstop free agent Jose Reyes on Sunday night, the Marlins may be looking to make another splash this afternoon. Pujols, who has hit 445 career home runs, has never played fewer than 140 games in a season and has a Hall-of-Fame-like career slash of .328/.420/.617.
