Mike Lowell

The home grown Mike Lowell was a fan favorite in Miami. Lowell had it all, he attended high school and college locally and was of Cuban heritage. Oh yeah, he could also rake.

During his time with the Fish, Lowell batted a nasty line of .272/.339/.462. More importantly he held down the hot corner for the Marlins and won his first, and only, Gold Glove in 2005.

Lowell was originally acquired from the Yankees in 1999 for Mark Johnson and Ed Yarnall. With 981 games played in a Marlins uniform, Lowell places 3rd all-time for most games played for the Fish. We will actually be talking about number two shortly.

The Fish, eager once again to sell off their talent, completed a trade with the Boston Red Sox in 2005. That deal was headlined by Lowell, Josh Beckett, Guillermo Mota being shipped off for future center pieces Hanley Ramirez and Anibal Sanchez.

Lowell went on to be a Red Sox great. With the Sox he finished his career winning an additional World Series in 2007 and being name MVP of the series for the Sox. All of these accolades were enough to get Lowell on the ballot during the 2016 Hall of Fame elections, however, received zero votes.
