Marlins Hot On Pujols to 9-Year Deal? Heath Bell Thinks Miami Can Win East

Dec 6, 2011, 1:58 AM EDT

Late Monday night, CBS Sports’ Scott Miller reported that the Miami Marlins met with Albert Pujols’ agent (also J-Roll’s) Dan Lozano in Dallas and upped their offer for the likely future Hall of Fame slugging first baseman to nine years.

Wow.

Miller goes on to write that some of the new Marlins are punch drunk and feeling good about themselves.

“I think we can win the division right now,” new Marlins closer Heath Bell said. “The Phillies, I think we can beat ‘em.

“Ryan Howard is hurt. They might not be getting Jimmy Rollins back.”

Talk is cheap, especially in December. But damn. Imagine if they landed King Albert.
