Forever Giants:1931 New York Giants(Year 49)

Saturday, December 27, 2014

1930 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.

1931 99-63
C Shanty Hogan 3 
1B Bill Terry 6.05 
2B Bill Hunnefield .1

-Ott becomes the youngest National Leaguer to hit 100 homers and two months later gets beaned.  The Giants play a night game in the off season.
