Miami Marlins Add Mark Buehrle

The Miami Marlins just keep spending. Having already signed shortstop Jose Reyes and reliever Heath Bell, the Marlins went out and snagged former Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle.

Buehrle was a star under then Chicago manager Ozzie Guillen. Now that Guillen is the Marlins manager, Buehrle decided to reconnect. Buehrle and the Marlins agreed to a four year deal worth $58 million.

This is a great move for the Marlins, who have by far made the biggest splash in the free agent market this offseason. There is still a ten year offer out to Albert Pujols worth a reported $220 million, but it looks like that deal will fall through at this point since I don't see the Marlins going any higher with their offer. I see it highly unlikely that the St. Louis Cardinals will let Pujols walk, but then again it all comes down to how much money Pujols is willing to play for. The Cardinals will try and match whatever offer is on the table, but there is no sense right now on how high some teams might big for Pujols.

The Marlins look like the team to beat in the National League right now even without the Pujols signing. Assuming they can make Hanley Ramirez happy, they could have one of the most exciting lineups in baseball today. Adding Buehrle to the rotation assures the Marlins another reliable starter to go along with the young arms of Josh Johnson and Ricky Nolasco.
