Midwest League Affiliates

Florida Marlins

Although the Marlins sent talent to Kane County from the beginning, it took a while to send a talented team. The first 6 Marlin years saw teams with records around .500, but a bunch of interesting players. Then three seasons with better teams, which contended with the best teams. For 2002, the Marlins returned to the dull-team-with-stars mode, and Cougars switched affiliates over the winter.

The Cougars have had some terrific prospects; one of 'em is about due.
