Forever Giants: 1919 New York Giants(Year 37)

Saturday, December 13, 2014

1918 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.

1919 99-63
C Lew McCarty .75 
1B Hal Chase 1.4
2B Larry Doyle 4.4
SS Art Fletcher 5.35
3B Heinie Zimmerman 2.3
LF George Burns 4.55
CF Benny Kauff 1.55
RF Ross Youngs  3.75
3B Frankie Frisch .15
C Mike Gonzalez -.7
1B High Pockets Kelly .35 
SP Jesse Barnes 3.95
SP Rube Benton 2.1
SP Fred Toney 3.8
SP Red Causey -1.25 
SP Art Nehf 2.9
RP Jean Dubuc .5

-Charles Stoneham buys the club with McGraw as a minority partner; Hal Chase punches a cop and is then gunned down in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri (kidding, nothing happens to him). And Mathewson returns from the War as a pitching coach. There's Frankie Frisch.
