Hans- Mount Rushmore of All-Time Miami Marlins. This is a team that doesn’t deserve a Mount Rushmore- all the good players they have had they ship off to other teams in a sell off. But I will do a Mount Rushmore for them-and I may as well do it now and get it over with. It is a shame this franchise has won two World Series- their fan base is not deserving of even having a team let along two championships in their brief history.

  1. GIANCARLO STANTON- Before moving on to New York Stanton played eight seasons with the Marlins and hit 267 home runs, make four all-star teams and won an MVP Award. Clearly the greatest Marlin to this point.

2. HANLEY RAMIERZ-7 seasons as a Marlin-was Rookie of the Year- 3 times all-star before being traded to the Dodgers.

3. DONTRELLE WILLIS- Had a great start to his MLB career winning Rookie of the Year and going 14-6 in 2003. In 2005 was second in the Cy Young Award voting. Was entertaining to watch with his high leg kick. His career peaked very early and went rapidly downhill. His last MLB game was at age 29.

4. LUIS CASTILLO-Played ten seasons with the Marlins- no one plays that long with the Marlins- He hit over .300 5 times lead the league in stolen bases a couple times, won three Gold Glove Awards and made three- all-star teams.

  1. Hanley never reached his potential or what the scouts thought he would be…he could be great and then good…and then injured…over and over.
    Not much of a choice because of the getting traded part.

    • Yes I agree early on it looked like he was heading towards stardom. Seems like a lot of players start out like a ball of fire only to fade early for whatever reasons. The classic examples in our lifetimes may be Gooden and Strawberry..

    • I’ve never seen a hitter so hot than Hanley was in 2013. He was carrying that team but then got plunked by Joe Kelly in the playoffs and his rib was broken.

      Gooden and Strawberry are the perfect poster children for this…
      I think we both agree with Fred Lynn of course his injuries did him in.

    • Yes Lynn was one of the best rookies ever- and his problems were the injuries not the self-destructiveness of Doc and Darryl.
