Now some other numbers worn by great Marlins players.
#44) Preston Wilson (1998-2002)
#47) Ricky Nolasco (2006-2013)
#50) Ryan Dempster (1998-2002)
#55) Josh Johnson (2005-2011)
#61) Livan Hernandez (1996-1999)
Well that was fun!
This should teach us some things. The Marlins have had some really good players wearing the same number, which put me in tough situations and it should also teach you that no one better than Wes Helms wore the number 39.
Writing this brought back a bunch of memories like the D-Train, Miggy and Josh Johnson. This also brought out some bad memories like Wes Helms and the tease of Mike Jacobs.
Remember Mike Jacobs? 2008 hit 32 home runs. What a time.
What do you think about this? Did I leave anyone off? Who should I have added that I missed?
