Forever Giants:1947 New York Giants(Year 65)

Wednesday, January 14, 2015

1946 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.

1947 87-75
C Walker Cooper  4.4 
1B Johnny Mize 6.55 
2B Bill Rigney 3.15
SS Buddy Kerr 3.2
3B Jack Lohrke .45
LF Sid Gordon .95 
CF Bobby Thomson 2.95 
RF Willard Marshall 6.05 
OF Gary Gearhart -.25
2B Buddy Blattner .55 
2B Mickey Witek .3 
C Ernie Lombardi .35 
OF Joe Lafata -.2
SP Larry Jansen 5.05
SP Dave Koslo  1.15 
SP Monty Kennedy 0 
SP Clint Hartung  1.95

-The Giants set the MLB record for homers and a season and have their first over .500 pythag since '42 in Ott's last season as a player.  

Connor played with Davis played with Mathewson played with Roush played with Ott.

Hall of Famers connecting the Giants from 1883-1947.
