Let's Check Out the Outfield

Same game.  This time in the outfield.  I really have no life.  The three positions are not being broken out by Left, Center, Right - it's displayed by player to be able to see continuity easily.  Sometimes a player became a primary by playing multiple outfield positions in the same season (like Chavez, Endy)
