In 27 seasons of major league play, the Florida and Miami Marlins have had nearly 600 players take the field for at least one plate appearance or batter faced.

We’ve been going over the 50 best Marlins of all-time, as measured by the Wins Above Replacement (WAR) metric. Its not a perfect stat, but I’ve found nothing better to measure pitcher against fielder, starter against reliever, and 1993 versus 2019.

Before we get started, here’s what we’ve covered over the past week:
