A # next to the game score indicates the opposing starter was a left-hander Holding your mouse (without clicking) over the game date will show you the name of the opposing starter in most browsers. Clicking on the date will take you to the box score. Clicking on the opposing team's name will take you to their batting order for this game.
Shading is not used to differentiate the players' performances. It is merely used to quickly illustrate long strings of games/years played by a single player. When a player in the column changes, so does the color of the shading.
