All Time San Francisco Giants Starting 9: 1980-89

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

The 70s are here.

The number is my WAR, made from combining baseball-reference and Davenport.  

C Bob Brenly 1984 4.4
-This becomes the second best catching season yet.  

1B Will Clark 1989 9.15
-The best season in the decade; the new best first base season yet.  

2B Joe Morgan 1982 5.3
-Morgan ties Madlock with the top second base season yet.  And he hit that homer.

SS Juan Uribe 1987 3.25
-Only the fifth best shortstop season yet; that's what happens when LeMaster "fills" the position for the first half of the decade.

3B Darrell Evans 1980 4.0
-Of the 8 best third base performances through '89, only one, this one from Evans in '80, is from this decade.

LF Kevin Mitchell 1989 7.45
-Like Clark had the best first base season yet, so did Mitch in left- no wonder we won the pennant.

CF Brett Butler 1988 6.25
-The first decade where Mays wasn't the CF; this is tied for the tenth top CF season through '89.

RF Chili Davis 1986 4.15
-The 11th best RF performance through '89 was the best of the 80s.

SP Vida Blue 1980 5.15
-Holy cow.  Do you know how many better Giants pitching performances there were from '58-'79 than this, the best Giants starting pitching performance of the entire decade?


RP Greg Minton 1982 6.45
-The new best relief performance yet.  

Bizarro Giant:

SS Johnny LeMaster 1982 1.8
Second worst Giant of the decade?  LeMaster two years before.
