Man I Miss These Guys…

If there is 1 thing I have remained consistent with since my youth it’s checking the box scores on a daily basis.  Even with them being accessible in a more timely manner via the Internet and other digital media, I still prefer the good old newspaper.

As a kid I learned how to read the box scores so I could follow Wade Boggs as I considered him to be the best hitter in the game in the 1980’s.  And now some 20+ years later I still love reading the box scores on a daily basis but now I find that my emphasis has leaned towards following former Florida Marlins players still active around the league.

I thought it would be fun to build my own team made up of former Marlins players that are sill playing in the big leagues.  Here we go:

1st Base – Derrek Lee

2nd Base – Luis Castillo

3rd Base – Mike Lowell

 

Shortstop – Edgar Rentaria

 

Center Field – Juan Pierre

 

Left Field – Gary Sheffield

Right Field – Josh Willingham

 

Catcher – Pudge Rodriguez

 

Starting Pitcher – Josh Beckett

 

Relief Pitcher – Trevor Hoffman

 

Man, the Marlins have let go of some amazingly talented guys over the years huh???
