Forever Giants:1945 New York Giants(Year 63)

Monday, January 12, 2015

1944 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.

1945 77-85
C Ernie Lombardi 3.6
1B Phil Weintraub 2
2B George Hausmann 1.6
SS Buddy Kerr 1.5
3B Nap Reyes 1.75 
LF Danny Gardella 1
CF Johnny Rucker .4 
RF Mel Ott 4.05
OF Red Treadway -1.15
C Clyde Kluttz  .95
3B Billy Jurges 1.5 
OF Whitey Lockman .85
OF Steve Filipowicz -1.05
1B Mike Schemer .65
1B Roy Zimmerman .25
OF Jim Mallory -.1
SP Bill Voiselle .4 
SP Harry Feldman 2.95 
SP Van Lingle Mungo 3.4 
SP Jack Brewer 1.35
RP Ace Adams 1.2 
RP Slim Emmerich 0

-3 straight years under .500 pythagorean wins for the Giants.  Ott's in his last season as a starter, he hits his 500th homer and crosses the 100 WAR mark.  Whitey Lockman's on this team - he'll also play for a season in San Francisco.
