Forever Giants: 1922 World Champion New York Giants(Year 40)

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

1921 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.

1922 World Champions (d. Yankees 4-0) 100-62
C Frank Snyder 1.85 
1B High Pockets Kelly 4.25
2B Frankie Frisch 4.6
SS Dave Bancroft 6.65
3B Heinie Groh 2.15 
LF Irish Meusel 1.55
CF Casey Stengel 2.5
RF Ross Youngs 3.2 
2B Johnny Rawlings 1.4 
C Earl Smith 1.05 
OF Bill Cunningham .35
OF Ralph Shinners -1.05
SP Art Nehf 2.8 
SP Jesse Barnes .75 
SP Phil Douglas 2.85 
SP Rosy Ryan 1.85

- It's the 40th year of Giants baseball - The Giants again beat the Yankees in the last year they'd share a stadium, spitballer Douglas got kicked out of the league for trying to jump to the Cardinals.  18 year old Travis Jackson gets a cup of coffee.
