Forever Giants: 1914 New York Giants(Year 32)

Saturday, December 6, 2014

1913 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.

1914 93-69
C Chief Meyers 2.9
1B Fred Merkle 2.9
2B Larry Doyle 1.5 
SS Art Fletcher 4.4
3B Milt Stock 3.45
LF Bob Bescher 1.6
CF Fred Snodgrass 1.2 
RF George Burns 5.75 
IF Eddie Grant  1.5
OF Dave Robertson -.5
C Larry McLean .05
OF Red Murray  -.55 
SP Jeff Tesreau  5.85 
SP Christy Mathewson 2
SP Rube Marquard .65
SP Al Demaree .4 
RP Art Fromme 1.05 

-Giants spent February playing the White Sox in a world tour leading to another 90 win pythag, although you can see Mathewson's slide.  Hooks Wiltse finishes, as does Mike Donlin, who returns to pick up a few at bats.
