Forever Giants:1939 New York Giants(Year 57)

Monday, January 5, 2015

1938 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.

1939 82-80
C Harry Danning 5.35
1B Zeke Bonura 3.45
2B Burgess Whitehead .65
SS Billy Jurges 3.55
3B Tom Hafey -.9
LF Jo Jo Moore .15 
CF Frank Demaree 2.2
RF Mel Ott 5.3 
2B Alex Kampouris 1.4
OF Bob Seeds -.2
3B Lou Chiozza -.1
OF Jimmy Ripple -.7 
C Ken O Dea -.45
SP Harry Gumbert 1.5 
SP Cliff Melton 2.95 
SP Bill Lohrman 2.4
SP Hal Schumacher .25 
SP Carl Hubbell 3.25 
SP Manny Salvo -.5

-A fight with the Dodgers, a spitting match with an umpire that cost Billy Jurges ten games in the Giants worst season in 13 years.
