Forever Giants: 1900 New York Giants(Year 18)

Thursday, November 20, 2014

1899 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.

1900 70-92
C Frank Bowerman -.15
1B Jack Doyle -.9 
2B Kid Gleason -1.1 
SS George Davis 4.75 
3B Charlie Hickman 2.5
LF Kip Selbach 5.65
CF George Van Haltren 3.55 
RF Mike Smith -.9
C Mike Grady -.55 
C Jack Warner .5 
P Bill Carrick 2.95 
P Pink Hawley 3.35
P Win Mercer 5.25
P Ed Doheny -1.8 
P Cy Seymour -.4 
P Christy Mathewson -.35

-On July 17, a 19 year old Christy Mathewson made his big league debut by hitting 3 Dodgers (they weren't the Dodgers yet, but they will be eventually).  Other things happened, Buck Ewing came back to manage, Jack Doyle punched an umpire on the 4th of July and got arrested, three Giants, including George Davis, pulled people from a burning building on their way to the ballpark one day.  But mainly the Giants suffered their second consecutive abysmal season.  Davis and Van Haltren, Giants since '93/'94 are the longest tenured Giants and each have a few more years of tenure left.
