List Rules Please only rank the players based on their time with the Marlins

This is a list of the greatest Miami Marlins ever. Since their inception in 1993, somehow, someway, the Miami Marlins (formerly Florida) defied logic and have won two World Series titles. The small market club has its own way of building a winner, even though many of its fans and people within the ranks of MLB don't agree with how its done. The Marlins rely on strong scouting in order to develop players who will eventually compete at the big league level. This organizational philosophy has churned out some of best players in recent years who can count themselves as the best Marlins in history.

Although he was only with the team for four years, Miguel Cabrera made a lasting impact on Marlins history. His role on the 2003 World Series champions, with his game winning home run in Game 4 being one of the most memorable moments in franchise history. Oh, and he was only 20 at the time. Cabrera evolved into the best player in all of baseball, but was traded to Detroit in the 2007 offseason.

Another hero from that 2003 team was Josh Beckett. As a 23-year-old, Beckett mowed down Yankee after Yankee en route to propelling the team to a six-game triumph. Pitching only on a few days rest, Beckett's performance is considered one of the greatest pitching displays in a postseason game. When Beckett was traded to Boston in 2005, the Marlins received their greatest shortstop, Hanley Ramirez, in the deal.

This is the list of the greatest Miami Marlins of all time. If you see someone who should be on the list and isn't, please feel free to include him on this list. Vote and rerank the order of who you think the greatest Miami Marlins are.
