    When a player plays for multiple teams in the same year, each season is listed, plus a sum of all which is noted with team titled TOT (for total) at Baseball

      When a player plays for multiple teams in the same year, each season is listed, plus a sum of all which is noted with team titled TOT (for total) at Baseball Reference. But in calculating the career stats, Sean has included all the partial seasons and the total, meaning he is double counting each partial season in the years a player plays for multiple teams.
