12:16 p.m. ET: A source has told Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports that the Cardinals are considering increasing the length of their offer to ten years in order to match Miami.
6:03 a.m. ET: The Miami Marlins have done more this offseason by signing closer Heath Bell and shortstop Jose Reyes than anyone could have asked for. But the team isn't done rocking the MLB world just yet, in fact, they are looking to reel in the biggest fish of all: Albert Pujols.
According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports (still feels weird saying that), the Marlins have boosted their offer to the best player in baseball to ten-years in length. Heyman's colleague, Scott Miller, initially reported the Marlins increased their offer from nine-years after meeting with Pujols' agent, Dan Lozano, late Monday night.
While the Pujols negotiations continue to develop, the Marlins are looking seriously at free-agent starter C.J. Wilson. The Angels are currently seen as the favorites to land Wilson, but the Marlins "are as aggressive as anyone" in the C.J. Wilson sweepstakes, according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi.
