Marlins hotly pursuing Pujols

DALLAS — Marlins officials on Monday afternoon met with the agent of slugger Albert Pujols.

Miami clearly isn’t done shopping.

For a couple of hours, Marlins executives met with agent Dan Lozano regarding Pujols.

The Marlins are making a strong push for the slugger, and seem willing to up their original nine-year offer made a few weeks ago.

After locking up Jose Reyes on a six-year deal on Sunday night, the Marlins attention turned quickly to the Cardinals first baseman, who is testing the free agent market.

Pujols visited the Marlins new ballpark and met with team officals in mid-November.

Very good news.

If we can’t get Pujols, are they going to pursue Prince Fielder?
