Forever Giants:1938 New York Giants(Year 56)

1937 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.

1938 88-74
C Harry Danning  2.5
1B Johnny McCarthy .5 
2B Alex Kampouris  1.45
SS Dick Bartell 4.45 
3B Mel Ott 9.5 MVPQ 
LF Jo Jo Moore 1.4 
CF Hank Leiber .7
RF Jimmy Ripple .8 
OF Bob Seeds 1
Uti Lou Chiozza .05
Uti George Myatt 1.35
C Gus Mancuso 1.5 
1B Sam Leslie -.35 
2B Bil Cissell .75
IF Mickey Haslin .75
SP Cliff Melton 1.25 
SP Harry Gumbert 2.25
SP Hal Schumacher 3.2 
SP Carl Hubbell 3.35 
RP Dick Coffman 1
RP Bill Lohrman .85
RP Jumbo Brown 2.5

- Hubbell wins his 200th game; a Giants fan is killed after a game at a bar outside of Ebbets Field.  Bartell gets dealt, but he'll be back.
