Forever Giants:1926 New York Giants(Year 44)

Monday, December 22, 2014

1925 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 parenthetical is a career Giants WAR total with the eventual goal of a top 100 Giants of all time. The record is pythagorean adjusted for 162 games.

-Future Hall of Famer and the Giants best player, Frankie Frisch, left the club and then eventually got traded in a dispute with McGraw.  17 year old Mel Ott joins the club while Youngs (Pureblood Giant) and Kelly finish up.
