Forever Giants: 1906 New York Giants(Year 24)

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

1905 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.

1906 96-66
C Roger Bresnahan 5.55
1B Dan McGann .9
2B Billy Gilbert .95 
SS  Bill Dahlen 1.85
3B Art Devlin 7.45 
LF Spike Shannon -.25
CF Cy Seymour 2.15
RF George Browne -.3 
Uti/2B Sammy Strang 3.8
Uti Frank Bowerman .95 
OF Sam Mertes .8 
OF Mike Donlin .5 
Uti Doc Marshall -.3
SP Joe McGinnity 2.8 
SP Christy Mathewson 3.7
SP Hooks Wiltse 2.7
SP Dummy Taylor 1.85 
SP Red Ames 1.15

-Mathewson had diptheria; his younger brother started a game and gave up 14 walks. McGraw punched a fan in April, as seen with Mathewson the year before, player/fan violence not uncommon in the early 20th century.
