Miami Marlins Mount Rushmore

I know alot of the pundits have been naming Mt. Rushmore's for their franchises, so I think it's time to do one for the Marlins...It is going to be TOUGH to pick four guys who defined our team, but here is what I came up with

Hanley Ramirez - Like him or hate him, Hanley was one of our few superstar players. The guy could hit, field and run, and he brought a certain swagger to the team. I know his play declined before he was traded, but we cannot take away how much of an impact he had on the Fish

Miguel Cabrera - I hope noone thinks that Miggy would have NOT been as successful for us if we didn't trade him. The guy is a STUD, flat out. Miggy was an instrumental part of us in 2003 and he continued to develop into one of the best hitters of the new generation. I was sad to see him go, but applauded the impact he had

Dave Dombrowski - The guy built us up year after year and finally put it together in 1997. More than Wayne Huizenga, this guy was responsible for the Fish turning things around and helped to rebuild the Fish into a young fiery bunch that took the 2003 title.

Jeff Conine - A no brainer of all no brainers, you cannot have a Mount Rushmore without Mr. Marlin. Jeff Conine is still the ONLY player in franchise history that was on both title teams, and he was the face of our team for many years. Yes, he was not the best player, nor the most flashy, but his unselfishness to move to first in 1997 and his leadership and consistency in 2003 are just some of the many factors he brought to us.
