Forever Giants:1927 New York Giants(Year 45)

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

1926 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.

C Zack Taylor -1.2
1B Bill Terry 5
2B Rogers Hornsby 9.3 MVPQ
SS Travis Jackson 5.45

-McGraw's 25th season as Giants manager includes the greatest second baseman of all time, Rogers Hornsby, who has the best Giants season for any player in more than 15 years. Ross Youngs, on the Forever list, who just retired in the off season, dies of Bright's Disease.
