Meaningless Infographics #2: A Journeyman’s Journey

I pass, like night, from land to land;
I have strange power of speech;
That moment that his face I see,
I know the man that must hear me:
To him my tale I teach.

Below, in cartographic form, the tortuous tale of that Peerless Peripatetic, that Inimitable Itinerant, Octavio Eduardo Dotel (whose membership in thirteen major league ballclubs has set a new standard).

Incidentally, one could put together a rather respectable (and fast!) team with players involved in Dotel transactions over the years. All position players have played at least one game at their listed position.
