Pujols Continues Shopping After Marlins' Offer

The contract offer made to Albert Pujols(notes) by the Miami Marlins seems to be about where the St. Louis Cardinals have lingered since spring training, or much closer to Joe Mauers(notes) numbers than Alex Rodriguezs.(notes)

On Tuesday, Yahoo! Sports reported that the offer from the suddenly and suspiciously flush Marlins was for nine years. We couldnt secure the dollar amount, but guessed given the Marlins need to at least get Pujols attention that it could have been in the $225 million range.

On Wednesday, the Palm Beach Post reported the offer was for less than $200 million, so the average annual value at most would be $22 million.
