Forever Giants:1934 New York Giants(Year 52)

Tuesday, December 30, 2014

1933 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.

1934 100-62
C Gus Mancuso .65 
1B Bill Terry 4.55
2B Hughie Critz 1.4
SS Travis Jackson 3.65
3B Johnny Vergez .25
LF Jo Jo Moore 3.3 
CF George Watkins .05
RF Mel Ott  7.65
IF Blondy Ryan .2 
OF Lefty O Doul 1.3
OF Hank Leiber -.8
SP Carl Hubbell 7.45 
SP Hal Schumacher 4.3 
SP Freddie Fitzsimmons 3.85
SP Roy Parmalee 2.7
RP Joe Bowman .8

-The Dodgers, perhaps motivated by Terry's "is Brooklyn still in the league?' beat the Giants in the final series of the season to cost them the pennant in the same year John McGraw died.  Giants 100 pythag wins is the most since '24.
