Left fielder Travis Ishikawa

Mind-boggling, I say.

He started 3 times in left field during the regular season and 14 times in the postseason. Whoa!

He went 5 for 13 and drove in 7 runs in the NLCS!

Ari Kaye of reports -- 
During the postseason run, Ishikawa said he received a lot of on-the-fly positioning instructions from first-base coach Roberto Kelly and center fielder Gregor Blanco. Blanco also gave Ishikawa advice on how to mentally prepare to play the outfield.
"I was trying to calm him down," Blanco said. "The first thing I told him was just to have fun. Everybody knows you're not an outfielder so don't try to do better or worse, just try to do what you can do."
