2010 San Francisco Giants - WARP/WAR

Monday, October 4, 2010

Over the summer, I looked at every single season by every single San Francisco Giant - ever, evaluating them by the two dominant metrics of universal value - WAR (I used the baseball-reference version) and WARP.

The 50s and 60s are here.
The 70s are here.
The 80s are here.
The 90s are here.
The 20aughts are here.  Also there is a list of the best and worst pythag seasons of all time - the 2010 SFG had 94 pythagorean wins, making this the 5th best regular season in SFG history.  Here's the list, by pythag wins:

1. 1962 100 wins (lost 7th game of WS)
2. 2002  98 wins  (lost 7th game of WS)
2. 1993  98 wins  (finished second in NL West)
4. 2000  97 wins  (lost in NLDS)
5. 2010  94 wins

The other SFG postseason teams (2010 is our ninth trip to the postseason):

1971 88 wins (lost in NLCS)
1987 93 wins (lost in NLCS)
1989 92 wins (lost in WS)
1997 80 wins (lost in NLDS)
2003 93 wins (lost in NLDS)

The All time best and worst seasons in San Francisco Giants history are here.

The All Time Career List for the San Francisco Giants is here.  It's now updated to include the 2010 season.  Matt Cain is now the 14th best SFG of all time; Tim Lincecum is now the 19th.

Here's the 2010 Giants.  WARP is first.  WAR second
