Apparently, all it took was a new ballpark and a name change to turn the Miami Marlins into one of baseball's biggest spenders. The Marlins punctuated a flurry of high-profile moves -- which already included signing closer Heath Bell and shortstop Jose Reyes -- by inking a four-year, $58 million deal with starting pitcher Mark Buehrle on Wednesday afternoon. And while Buehrle's arrival likely signifies the end of the Marlins' pursuit of Albert Pujols, sources say they're still very much in the mix for C.J. Wilson. "Some thought the Marlins would bow out of negotiations for Wilson," wrote Los Angeles Times reporter Mike DiGiovanna. "But the Marlins' offer is still on the table, according to a person close to negotiations."
