Founded in 1993, the Florida Marlins took little time to make an impact as they won the 1997 World Series crown in seven games over the Cleveland Indians.
Due to financial issues that team was blown-up, restocked with young talent and once again struck gold by winning another World Series in 2003. Just look at some of the young stars on that team: Derrek Lee, Miguel Cabrera, Josh Beckett, Juan Pierre and Brad Penny to name a few.
The Marlins have shown more financial commitment since 2003 with contract extensions to Hanley Ramirez in 2008 and Josh Johnson before the start of last season.
It's now been eight years since their last championship, so the young talent they've acquired over the years are ready to blossom.
