Positional Adjustment

I just implemented a very slight change to how we calculate the positional adjustment for WAR. Previously we were calculating it based on full games played at a position. Now it is being calculated by innings played, which is a bit more precise.

This may shift a player’s positional adjustment up or down a run at the most, and will mainly impact multi-position players, but that’s about it.
