Looking Back on Tomorrow: New York Mets

Appreciating the best of baseball's nomads.

Toil away on BP’s Transaction Analysis beat long enough and you start to get a feel for the tides. There’s a certain ebb and flow in the way styles of players drift from team to team—which guys tend to find their way through waivers, which bench bats are most likely to bop from harbor to harbor. Certain franchises keep churning to find the right mix of guys on the come-up or past-their-prime vets in need of one more shot. And for the most part, players who tend to end up on more than a fistful of teams are of a certain stripe: just-a-hair-above-replacement utility bats and relief pitchers.

That is, at least in part, why Octavio Dotel is the worldwide leader in MLB teams played for (with 13) and Matt Stairs is his position-player counterpart (with 12). These are players who fit a niche that nearly every team tries to fill: you can never have enough competent relief pitchers, and you can never have enough power off the bench. But while Dotel and Stairs were good, they rarely really fell under the umbrella of “great.” So let’s try a different view, shall we? Let’s examine the players who suited up for many, many teams and pluck out the best of them. Can we find any patterns in their movements, any styles that seem en vogue, or any ties that bind together the greats who never found a regular home?
