Forever Giants: 1884 New York Gothams (Year 2)

Monday, November 3, 2014

1883 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.
