Forever Giants:1932 New York Giants(Year 50)

Sunday, December 28, 2014

1931 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.

1932 86-76
C Shanty Hogan .95 
1B Bill Terry 7.25 
2B Hughie Critz 1
SS Doc Marshall  -.9

-The Silver Anniversary Giants; McGraw quit midseason after three decades (ten pennants, 3 world titles) and Terry became the first new Giants manager since 1902. 1902! McGraw went Roosevelt to Roosevelt! Freddie Lindstrom finishes up.
