Carl Barger's No. 5 is "unretired" for Logan Morrison

Barger     No member of the Florida Marlins has ever worn No. 5. That number was retired by the organization following the death of Carl Barger, the franchise's first president. The Marlins chose to retire "5" because it was worn by Barger's favorite player, Joe DiMaggio.

     But the Miami Marlins are allowing outfielder Logan Morrison to have the number and will commemorate Barger's memory with a plaque in the new ballpark. Morrison had been wearing "20." Now the only remaining number that is retired by the Marlins is Jackie Robinson's "42."

     Have the Marlins ever had a player whose number needs to be retired, in your opinion? Do they have such a player in the making?
