Forever Giants: 1887 New York Giants(Year 5)

Thursday, November 6, 2014

1886 is here.

My WAR calculation is a combination of Baseball-reference and Clay Davenport; I believe it to be the "best" WAR number available for historical comparison. 8 WAR is an MVP quality season.  The record is pythagorean adjusted for 162 games.

1B Roger Connor 5.85 
2B Danny Richardson 3.7 
SS Monte Ward 6.2 
3B Buck Ewing 2.9

Uti/LF Jim O’Rourke 2.1
