Forever Giants:1928 New York Giants(Year 46)

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

1927 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.

1928 96-66
C Shanty Hogan 3.35
1B Bill Terry 3
2B Andy Cohen 2.1
SS Travis Jackson 6.3
3B Freddie Lindstrom 6.95
LF Lefty O’Doul .65
CF Jimmy Welsh 2
RF Mel Ott 3.35 
Uti Andy Reese .25 
OF Les Mann -.9
OF Edd Roush -.15 
C Bob O’Farrell .1
SP Larry Benton 6.25 
SP Freddie Fitzsimmons 2.75 
SP Joe Genewich 2.3
SP Carl Hubbell 1.75
SP Vic Aldridge.15
RP Jim Faulkner .55

-Ott joins Terry in the starting lineup and Hubbell becomes a Giant as the next generation of Hall of Famers moves in.
