MIAMI -- The Marlins spent the week entertaining high-profile free agents, showing them the sizzle of the club's new stadium while allowing them to soak in the South Florida sunshine.I chose the 1980 Topps design because José Alberto Pujols Alcántara was born in January of 1980 -- however, as with all Dominican Republic birth certificates, this is subject to change.
Albert Pujols, the top free agent on the market, is the latest big name to see the new ballpark.
The slugger was in town on Friday, meeting with the Marlins while getting a tour of the 37,000-seat, retractable-roof ballpark.
At this point, my only hope is if Albert decides to play for the Marlins, he has the good sense to allow ESPN to produce an hour long television "DECISION" special which concludes with him announcing:
"This spring.... this is very tough... this spring, I'm going to take my talents to South Beach and join the Miami Marlins... "
