Multiple reports are now out that the Miami Marlins have made a 10-year offer to first baseman Albert Pujols. An exact dollar figure has not been confirmed, though the number $22 million per is getting tossed around quite a bit by the relevant baseball heads on Twitter.

Talks are now shifting to the extent of the contract’s potential no-trade clause. It should also be noted that the Chicago Cubs have made some sort of qualifying offer to Pujols, though few details are known.
