Forever Giants: 1925 New York Giants(Year 43)

Saturday, December 20, 2014

1924 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.

1925 84-78
C Frank Snyder .55 
1B Bill Terry 2.2
2B High Pockets Kelly 2.55 
SS Travis Jackson .35 
3B Freddie Lindstrom -.25
LF Irish Meusel 2.85 
CF Billy Southworth -.45 
RF Ross Youngs -.6 
2B Frankie Frisch 2.75 
OF Hack Wilson -.5 
C Hank Gowdy 1.35 
C Grover Hartley .7
SP Jack Scott 6.05 
SP Virgil Barnes 2 
SP Kent Greenfield 1.6
SP Jack Bentley 2 
SP Art Nehf 1.24
SP Freddie Fitzsimmons 2.8
RP Wayland Dean .3

-McGraw missed 30 games with illness, Mathewson died of tuberculosis, the Giants dealt Hack Wilson and had their worst year in a decade. Terry and Lindstrom move into the lineup
