Most well-traveled player..

Before even opening the topic and just reading the title, Kenny Lofton immediately popped in to mind. So far, he has played for:

Houston

Cleveland (twice)

Atlanta

San Francisco

Chicago (AL)

Pittsburgh

Chicago (NL)

New York (AL)

Philadelphia

Los Angeles

That's 10 teams. I think that it will be pretty tough to find any current major leaguer that has played for more than Lofton.

Reggie Sanders has his share.

He was with the Reds 1991-1998

But since

1999 Padres

2000 Braves

2001 D-Backs

2002 Giants

2003 Pirates

2004-2005 Cards

2006 Royals & ? You can bet for certain he will be traded in July.

Sanders I guess isn't quite the most traveled, but he does hold some records in terms of being the only guy to have X amount of production for Y amount of teams.

And a World Series ring too. He was important to the D'Backs in 2001.

Terry Mulholland's gotta be #1 or #2 at the very worst.

'86-'89: SF Giants

'89-'93: Philadelphia

1994: NY Yankees

1995: SF Giants (again)

1996: Seattle, Philadelphia (again)

1997: SF Giants (AGAIN!!)

'97-'99: Chicago Cubs

'99-'00: Atlanta

2001: Pittsburgh

'01,'02: LA Dodgers

'02-'03: Cleveland

'04-'05: Minnesota

2006: Arizona

That's 11 different teams, without counting multiple stops in Philadelphia or San Francisco. And lefthanded pitching is alwys in demand come the deadline, so he may be on the move again in a few weeks.

Mullholland is STILL ACTIVE? no way. wow. how old IS he?

He was the guy compared to "a bag of soot" at one time by a reporter, I think.

Biologically, Mulholland is 39. Judging by his goatee, he's 58.

Ah, I can't speak badly of him - I watched his no-hitter for the Phillies live, which was pretty cool to see.
