While the majority of the Florida Marlins’ first round draft disasters were before the Jeffrey Loria/Larry Beinfest/David Samson era and their pair of World Series victories (1997 and 2003) make no mistake the Marlins could have been a great team out of the gates. They had only one winning season between 1993 and 2002 which yielded the one World Series.

Yet we can’t help but look back on what the Marlins lost out on with players who were taken shortly thereafter. Of course many teams have missed out on great players in later rounds but we won’t go that deep, we will only go on the players the Marlins could have drafted based on how good their were pre-draft hype.
