Miami Marlins: Can You Spot If Someone Is a Marlins Player?

Your Miami Marlins kick off the 2014 MLB season tonight when they host the Colorado Rockies at the Broward County Commissioners Should Never Forget What the Marlins Did to Miami-Dade County Before Giving the Panthers Money Park Marlins Park.

But before you don't go to the game and maybe decide to catch the opening pitch on TV tonight, we want to challenge you in our new internet game called: Marlin? Not a Marlin?

It's pretty self-explanatory. Can you tell, just by reading a name, if that person is a player on the Marlins' 2014 roster, a fake, or someone else entirely?

The rules are simple. Read the name. Ask yourself if this person is a Marlin or NOT a Marlin (or, if you like, have a friend read them to you).

After each name, we've placed a Marlins-themed photo. The photos are random and not related to the names listed. Below each photo is your answer for each name.

For each name you get right: Award yourself five points. Sixty points would give you a perfect score.

And please, for the sake of your own integrity, don't look below the photos before answering. YOU'RE ONLY CHEATING YOURSELF.
