Paul Lo Duca and Matt Treanor

In 2005, the Marlins catching combo featured Paul Lo Duca and Matt Treanor. The Marlins finished six games out of the Wild Card that season with a 83-79. It’s one of only three seasons over the last fifteen that the team finished above .500. And much of that could be credited to Lo Duca and the steady play of Treanor.

Lo Duca earned an All-Star nod that season, and slashed .283/.334/.380 with six homers and 57 RBI. Treanor played in 58 games and was an anchor behind the plate. He had timely hits that year and provided a steady glove.
