Forever Giants: 1918 New York Giants(Year 36)

Friday, December 12, 2014

1917 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.

1918 91-71
C Lew McCarty .6
1B Walter Holke .3
2B Larry Doyle 2.3
SS Art Fletcher 4.95
3B Henie Zimmerman 1.3
LF George Burns 4.65
CF Benny Kauff 1.2
RF Ross Youngs 2.9 
C Bill Rariden -.05 
1B Joe Wilhoit -.25
2B Jose Rodriguez -.7
IF Ed Sicking -.5
OF Jim Thorpe -.75
SP Pol Peritt 1.65
SP Red Causey .5
SP Al Demaree .0
SP Slim Sallee 1.2
SP Jeff Tesreau .8 (23.9) Last Season, Tesreau retires as a Pureblood Giant

-WWI meant a shortened season, another 90 win pythag for McGraw. Tesreau joins the Forever list.  Only one MLB player died in WWI, Eddie Grant, the former Giant.
