I like to do this every year at the start of Spring Training, tracking former Marlins and where they are as camps open up across MLB. Obviously, if I missed any, feel free to speak up and I'll add them here.

Looks like you can add Livan to Washington's list. Also Lindstrom to Houston, Zaun to Mil. Marlins minor leaguers on rosters or NRI Ronald Belisario-LAD, Jeff Bailey-AZ and Josh Wilson-Sea. One could probably make a whole list for former Marlins players that are now coaches and former Marlins managers and coaches around the Majors too!

New York Mets - Johan Santana

 

Does not count. He was acquired in a pre-arranged deal to trade him elsewhere all within a day's worth of transactions. We wanted and got Camp, who was considered a better prospect. It's like saying Anfernee Hardaway is a former Golden State Warrior.

Now maybe I could hear an argument for Camp's significance on the Twins' organization or Chris Webber on the Magic. But the same argument can not be made for the Marlins and Santana or Warriors and Hardaway.

Wow, you sound really angry here. We all know the story. The OP can do what he wants with our answers.
