Pujols: The Marlins’ $200 Million Dollar Man?

He’s led the St. Louis Cardinals to two World Series titles in the last six seasons, but will baseball superstar Albert Pujols be switching teams?

The 31-year-old Dominican first baseman has been reportedly offered a 10-year contract by the Miami Marlins for an undisclosed amount, according to ESPN. Sources believe the deal could be worth $200 million or more.

The offer comes on the heels of the Marlins offering shortstop Jose Reyes a six-year contract valued at more than $100 million.

The Marlins—who will be moving into a new ballpark next season—and Cardinals seem to be the clear frontrunners in the quest to sign the three-time National League MVP.

In January, the Cardinals offered Pujols a nine-year contract for roughly $200 million.

Pujols—who hit .299 last season with 37 homers and 99 RBIs despite battling pain in his left elbow—helped the Cardinals this year to their second World Series title since 2006.
