The Revolving Door

Think stability matters?

Since Jim Thome departed following the 2002 season, the Indians have employed the services of 30 players at first base:

Ben Broussard, Travis Hafner, Lou Merloni, Josh Phelps, Casey Blake, Bill Selby, Shane Spencer, Jose Hernandez, Jeff Liefer, Ryan Garko, Eduardo Perez, Victor Martinez, Chris Gomez, Andy Gonzalez, Michael Aubrey, Andy Marte, Sal Fasano, Chris Gimenez, Mark DeRosa, Matt LaPorta, Niuman Romero, Russell Branyan, Jordan Brown, Shelley Duncan, Jack Hannahan, Carlos Santana, Casey Kotchman, Jose Lopez, Russ Canzler, Brent Lillibridge

After the club traded Roberto Alomar following the ’01 campaign, the Indians shuffled through 34 second basemen until Jason Kipnis ultimately brought some constancy to the position.

Aaron Boone, Adam Everett, Alex Cora, Anderson Hernandez, Angel Santos, Asdrubal Cabrera, Bill Selby, Brandon Phillips, Chris Gomez, Cord Phelps, Drew Sutton, Greg LaRocca, Hector Luna, Jamey Carroll, Jason Donald, Jason Kipnis, Jayson Nix, Joe Inglett, John McDonald, Jolbert Cabrera, Jorge Velandia, Jose Hernandez, Josh Barfield, Lou Merloni, Luis Rivas, Luis Valbuena, Mark Grudzielanek, Mike Rouse, Orlando Cabrera, Ramon Vazquez, Ricky Gutierrez, Ronnie Belliard, Tony Graffanino, Zach Sorensen

Ouch. I wonder what the other positions, excluding pitching, look like.
