Forever Giants:1940 New York Giants(Year 58)

Tuesday, January 6, 2015

1939 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.
