After changing their uniforms and dropping the Florida tag for a more specific Miami moniker, the Marlins signed one of the biggest names in the free agent pool: former New York Met Jose Reyes. As if that weren't enough, the Fins are after the biggest name on the market in MVP and two-time World Series champ Albert Pujols.

According to ESPN, the Marlins have made a 10-year offer to the Cardinals first baseman. The financial end of the deal has yet to be disclosed, and it remains unclear if the Marlins included a no-trade clause in their offer.

The Marlins may be looking to add Pujols to the mix quickly as other teams like the Chicago Cubs have expressed interest in the slugger. If they somehow manage to land the all-star, Miami would have a lineup that includes three of the biggest free agents in Reyes, Pujols, and closer Heath Bell, who also signed on with the team this week.
