Forever Giants: 1907 New York Giants(Year 25)

Friday, November 28, 2014

1906 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.

1907 90-72
C Roger Bresnahan 3.05 
1B Dan McGann 2.4 
2B Larry Doyle -1.1
SS Bill Dahlen 1.05 
3B Art Devlin 5 
LF Spike Shannon 1.45 
CF Cy Seymour 3.65 
RF George Browne 0 
OF Sammy Strang 2.5 
Uti Frank Bowerman .7 
2B Tommy Corcoran -.2
1B Jack Hannifin .45
SP Christy Mathewson 7.55 
SP Joe McGinnity 1.9 
SP Red Ames 1.65 
SP Hooks Wiltse 3.15 
SP Dummy Taylor 1.25

-A quarter century of Giants.  Bresnahan starts using shinguards and, following a June beaning in which he's given last rites, a padded mask.  Giants are at 90+ wins each of McGraw's five years as full season manager.
