He finds himself on the precipice of history. The question is how Octavio Dotel should commemorate it.
Should he ship his suitcase to Cooperstown? Or should they give him his own show on the Travel Channel?
When he signed with the Tigers this winter, it may not have been news of quite the same magnitude as it was when the Tigers signed that Prince guy. But it was way more historic -- because it put Octavio Dotel in position to do something no player in history has ever done:
Play for 13 different teams. In the major leagues. And the fact that he's done that in only 13 years? Just makes it all the more awe-inspiring.
Has some pretty interesting anecdotes from Dotel (anecdotels?) about his well traveled past, and is a pretty interesting read.
