Last Friday, we started a five part series on the Top 50 Florida and Miami Marlins of all time.

To kill some time this offseason, Marlin Maniac is going over the past 27 seasons of MLB history in South Florida. Using the Wins Above Replacement (WAR) metric, we were able to rank the 50 top players in Miami Marlins history. Oh, I know there are other metrics, but I feel as if WAR is the best for comparing players of different positions and eras.

For those of you who missed it, here’s the crib notes version of the countdown so far.
