Forever Giants:1952 New York Giants(Year 70)

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

1951 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.

-Mays joins the Army; Hoyt Wilhelm, a 29 year old rookie, makes his debut.  It's the Giants third straight 90+ pythag season in the 70th year of the organization.
