Forever Giants:1944 New York Giants(Year 62)

Saturday, January 10, 2015

1943 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.

1944 71-91
C Ernie Lombardi .3 
1B Phil Weintraub 4.3
2B George Hausmann .8
SS Buddy Kerr 3.3
3B Hal Luby 1.6
LF Ducky Medwick 4.1 
CF Johnny Rucker -3.95
RF Mel Ott 5.05
CI Nap Reyes 1.65 
3B Billy Jurges -.2 
C Gus Mancuso .2 
OF Red Treadway .4
OF Danny Gardella .4
OF Bruce Sloan -.05
SP Bill Voiselle 4.1
SP Harry Feldman -.8 
SP Eward Pyle .25 
RP Ace Adams .3
RP Rube Fischer -1.65

-Didn't get much better in '44, the War years weren't happy ones at the Polo Grounds.
