Forever Giants:1984 San Francisco Giants Year 27 (102)

Thursday, February 26, 2015

1983 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.

1984 69-93
C Bob Brenly  4.35 
1B Al Oliver -.8
2B Manny Trillo .4
SS Johnny LeMaster -.65 
3B Joel Youngblood -.75 
LF Jeffrey Leonard 3.65 
CF Dan Gladden 3.45 
RF Jack Clark 2.45 (28.95) Last Season
OF Chili Davis 4.85 
IF Brad Wellman -.25
OF Dusty Baker 1.25
1B Scot Thompson .1
OF Gene Richards  -.25
C Steve Nicosia .15
2B Dwane Kuiper -.8 
IF Fran Mullins .45
SP Bill Laskey .8 
SP Mike Krukow -.25 
SP Mark Davis -1.4 
SP Jeff Robinson -.15
RP Greg Minton 1.25 
RP Frank Williams 1.6
RP Gary Lavelle 3.05 (24.15) Last Season

-The worst Giants club since '56 in a year where Candlestick hosts the All Star Game. Frank Robinson doesn't last the season, Danny Ozark finishes up and former Giant Jim Davenport will take over in '85.  This was the year of the Crazy Crab - it was rough. Both Clark and Lavelle are finished.
