MLB.com put up an article titled "One guy you forgot was on your favorite team" and they chose Mike Piazza for the Marlins but I think that's such a horrible choice.

The trivia of Piazza being a Marlin for 8 days is brought up so often that it's barely an unknown anymore. And if the title says players you forgot were on "your favorite team" there's virtually no long term Marlins fan who doesn't already know that Piazza was a Marlin and it's definitely not something we'll forget. Such a poor choice considering the premise of the article.

So basically I thought it would be fun to bring up this question here. Fyi the article listed well known players so that's the catch because obviously there's hundreds of forgotten players in Marlins history. Name a well known player who we forgot was a Marlin.

Fyi Conine was the choice for the Mets.

Any ideas?

I think many forget or never knew that Trevor Hoffman was a Marlin

Aaron Boone, Luis Gonzalez, Tim Raines, Terry Pendleton, Jeff Francoeur, Andrew Miller, Carlos Lee, Carlos Zambrano, maybe Carlos Delgado

Does Johan Santana count? Seems like I forget Placido Polanco playing here, Jorge Julio is another one I tend forget

Ok this one is really good. I remember being excited when I heard we got him too.

How about Paul LoDuca? Not sure if he's a big enough name or if he's forgotten enough.

Clearly the correct answer here is Yunel Escobar

Man there was a point when Loria would hire anyone with a name. Half of the leagues stars played here after they got old.

Which one? The outfielder or the pitcher??
I was talking about the outfielder previously of the cubs, but I guess both. Though the pitcher we forgot about cause he was pretty much completely forgettable over his career anyway lol

We released Marmol and brought in Rodriguez who was actually even worse!

In a few years, the answer will be Ichiro. Mark Buehrle and Dave Magadaan deserve mentions, too.
