      I know Tony Mullane did it but not sure if his would really count because of the league he played in. He won 30 games with 3 different teams in 3 years.

            Off the top of my head, I'd say Gaylord Perry... though I'm sure it's been done sooner.

                Joe McGinnity? He played for three different teams during 20th century.

                      seems like a good guess but they may not be counting pre 1901 seasons and data which is common as the rules and game were much different that the "modern" start of baseball in 1901
