Forever Giants: 1895 New York Giants(Year 13)

Friday, November 14, 2014

1894 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.

1895 83-79
C Duke Farrell 1.5 
1B Jack Doyle 1.1
2B General Stafford -.8
SS Shorty Fuller .8 
3B George Davis 4.25 
LF Eddie Burke -.6 
CF George Van Haltren 2.35 
RF Mike Tiernan 4.8 
C Parke Wilson -1.2 
OF Yale Murphy -1.25 
Uti Tom Bannon -.45
OF Oyster Burns -.05
P Amos Rusie 5.6 
P Dad Clarke 4.3
P Jouett Meekin 2.35 
P Les German .55

-Rusie and Davis continue their Hall of Fame careers; Tiernan will eventually finish his career as one of the 5 greatest ever Giants at the time of his retirement.
