Forever Giants:1955 New York Giants(Year 73)

Friday, January 23, 2015

1954 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.

1955 84-78
C Ray Katt -1 
1B Gail Harris -.65
2B Wayne Terwilliger  1.8
SS Alvin Dark 1.1 
3B Hank Thompson 2.75 
LF Whitey Lockman .15 
CF Willie Mays 9.2 MVPQ 
RF Don Mueller -1.55 
2B Davey Williams -.25 
IF Bobby Hoffman .8
LF Dusty Rhodes 1.3 
SS Billy Gardner -.55 
3B Sid Gordon  1.1 
LF Monte Irvin .4 (17) Last Season
C Wes Westrum .1
SP Johnny Antonelli 4.65
SP Jim Hearn 3.7
SP Ruben Gomez 1.8 
SP Sal Maglie 1.2 (23.5)  Last Season
RP Marv Grissom 2.3
RP Hoyt Wilhelm .95 
RP Don Liddle 1.25

-Durocher's last year, a former Giant, Rigney, will replace him.  It's the end of the Giants careers for both Maglie and Irvin.

Connor played with Davis played with Mathewson played with Roush played with Ott played with Mize played with Irvin played with Mays

That's going to be 90 years of Giants baseball connected by Hall of Famers.
