Forever Giants:1961 San Francisco Giants Year 4 (79)

Friday, January 30, 2015

1960 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.

1961 93-69
C Ed Bailey  1.45
1B Willie McCovey  2.45 
2B Joey Amalfitano .35 
SS Jose Pagan .3
3B Jimmy Davenport 3.05 
LF Harvey Keunn .6
CF Willie Mays 8.25 MVPQ  
RF Felipe Alou 2.45 
LF Orlando Cepeda 6.2 
2B Chuck Hiller .15
RF Matty Alou 1
SS Eddie Bressoud -.55 
C Tom Haller -.2
SP Mike McCormick 4.9
SP Jack Sanford 1.7 
SP Juan Marichal 1.6 
SP Billy Loes .15
RP Billy O Dell .75 
RP Sam Jones -.1 
RP Stu Miller 4.35

-We tour Japan before the season and Stu Miller gets blown off the mound at the All Star Game. Former Giant Alvin Dark takes over and leads Giants to their best pythag finish since '54. Mays pulls into third for all time Giants WAR
