They were making the Marlins kick up the price so they could take the offer to St. Louis and make them match it. Never a real intention to leave St. Louis. Figures.

Anyways, word is the Marlins have turned their eyes on Buehrle and Prince Fielder. And that CJ Wilson might have made a verbal agreement to the Angels, although other reports saying the Marlins offered him 6 years (eek).
Five minutes after I got that word (I have a source at the meeting, I'll leave it at that), Olney came on and basically said much of the same on SportsCenter. He said they want to move Hanley because Hanley asked for more money in order to accept the position change. They would then use the freed up money to help put together a Fielder package.

Yeah I saw the Olney bits as well. Most of this seems to be coming from Hanley's agent, so I wouldn't buy too much into it.

Wow, I can't believe Buehrle got 4 years. This pitching market is so inflated.

We'll probably have a better idea in a couple of days. Getting Buerhle is a big move.

All good things do come to an end, I guess.

I sincerely doubt that in my lifetime I will ever like a pitcher as much as I liked Mark Buehrle.

(That makes it sound like he's dead, but, he might as well be. Marlins games are never on TV.)

Enjoy him, #7. Your team, and your clubhouse, just got a lot better.

Buehlehr.

Thanks! I'm really excited, and I'm glad that the Pujols thing fell through. Don't get me wrong, I would've been overjoyed to have Pujols in Miami. But when you think about it, with the 10 years, the age, the fact that we have a 1B, and that we really need to fix the rotation... it just wouldn't make much sense. Far from a lateral move, but the residual value of an addition of a pitcher is much better. And word around town is they're still keeping eyes on Wilson/Fielder. They offered 6 to Wilson, which I'm really not liking one bit. And I would just like them to steer clear of Prince Fielder. Far, far away. Same situation as Pujols. We have a 1B. One who is cheaper. Who will age better. Who is quicker. Who can play defense. We have a hitting lineup as it stands.

@HanleyRamirez OMGGGG Crazy stuff going around...Im just relaxing with my family and getting mentally and physically strong and ready for next season
Doesn't sound like a player who is angry and trying to get traded.

Amazing how rumors can spread and 'Hanley doesn't want to play 3B' goes to 'Hanley is demanding more money to play 3B and therefore the Marlins are trying to trade him'.

angels to sign albert pujols
by tim dierkes [december 8, 2011 at 8:56am cst]
the angels are the bridesmaid no more. Albert pujols will sign with the angels for ten years and $250-260mm, tweets yahoo's tim brown. He'll receive a full no-trade clause. Pujols decided this morning, writes brown. If pujols received more than $252mm, his new deal will be the second-largest in baseball history in both its total and average annual value.

Lefty C.J. Wilson will join Albert Pujols in Los Angeles, as the Angels continue a surprising free agent spending spree. The Halos completed a deal with Wilson today, an executive who spoke to the team told Joel Sherman of the New York Post.
The AL West will be very interesting.

Really odd... completely unexpected. I'm not disappointed in losing out in Pujols but really annoyed about Wilson. We could've had one nasty rotation. Hopefully the Marlins push hard at a Wandy Rodriguez or a Roy Oswalt.

At least Cardinals fans can quit force feeding us that he's a "class act." He took the money and ran, like everyone else in the league.
