Forever Giants:1930 New York Giants(Year 48)

Friday, December 26, 2014

1929 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 parenthetical is a career Giants WAR total with the eventual goal of a top 100 Giants of all time. The record is pythagorean adjusted for 162 games.

1930 92-70
C Shanty Hogan 2.5 
1B Bill Terry 7.9
2B Hughie Critz -.75
SS Travis Jackson 5.15 
3B Freddie Lindstrom 5.75 
LF Freddy Leach 1
CF Wally Roettger -.95
RF Mel Ott 5.75 
C Bob O’Farrell 1.2 
OF Ethan Allen -.05
Uti Doc Marshall .65
OF Andy Reese -.7 
SP Bill Walker 2.15 
SP Carl Hubbell 3 
SP Freddie Fitzsimmons 3 
SP Clarence Mitchell  1.55
RP Hub Pruett .55

-The Polo Grounds got a PA system and Bill Terry became the NLs last .400 hitter.  Bancroft comes back after 7 years away to finish his career as a Giant.
