Miami Marlins Mt. Rushmore

Faces of the Marlins' mountain shouldn't be carved in stone just yet.
<p> With spotty attendance and no baseball-only stadium, the Marlins have been unable to retain or sign high-priced players. So there are no long-tenured stars in Florida history. This Mt. Rushmore will change dramatically over the next 10 years or so.</p>

Major League Baseball is promoting an effort to identify the best four players in each team’s history. We selected our choices for Mt. Rushmores a few years ago. Here are updated versions for all 30 teams. Who are the four baseball players that have risen above all others for each organization? The question sounds simple, right? Not so fast.

Today the Atlanta Braves will retire No. 6 in honor of long-time manager Bobby Cox.

With 2,504 wins, Cox is fourth all-time. Having won 503 more games than he lost ranks him third behind John McGraw, long-time manager of the Giants for 33 seasons, and Joe McCarthy, leader of the seven world champion Yankees squads.

<p> The question posed recently whether Derek Jeter should be considered as part of the Yankees’ Mt. Rushmore piqued my interest. Not really the Jeter-Yankees part, but the idea that teams should have their own Mt. Rushmores. Who are the four individuals that have risen above all others for each organization? The question sounds simple. Even two guys sitting in a bar can figure that out, right? Not so fast. Let the arguments begin.</p>
