Forever Giants:1953 New York Giants(Year 71)

1952 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.

1953 83-79
C Wes Westrum  1.45 
1B Whitey Lockman 1.5 
2B Davey Williams 1.1 
SS Alvin Dark 4.45 
3B Hank Thompson 4.35 
LF Monte Irvin 3.85 
CF Bobby Thomson 1.15 
RF Don Mueller 1.35 
IF Daryl Spencer -.65
IF Bobby Hoffman .6
1B Tookie Gilbert -1 
OF Dusty Rhodes 0 
C Ray Noble .15
SP Ruben Gomez 3.9
SP Jim Hearn 1.65 
SP Larry Jansen 1.95 
SP Sal Maglie 1.65 
SP Al Worthington .8
RP Dave Koslo -.4 (14.75) Last season
RP Hoyt Wilhelm 3.35 
RP Al Corwin .65

-A brawl with Brooklyn costs Dodger Carl Furillo the last month of the season; it's the worst Giants season since '46.  Tookie Gilbert played two big league seasons, three years apart, both for the Giants and both bad.  Thomson's going to spend the next three years away, but he'll be back.  It's Koslo's last season.
