Forever Giants:1964 San Francisco Giants Year 7 (82)

Tuesday, February 3, 2015

1963 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.

1964 89-73
C Tom Haller 3.1 
1B Orlando Cepeda  4.3 
2B Hal Lanier 1.85
SS Jose Pagan -1.3 
3B Jim Ray Hart 5.2 
LF Willie McCovey .2 
CF Willie Mays 10.95 
RF Jesus Alou -.05
OF Harvey Kuenn -.6
IF Jim Davenport 1 
OF Matty Alou .25 
IF Chuck Hiller  -.35 
C Del Crandall .65
OF Duke Snider -.6
SP Juan Marichal 6.2
SP Bobby Bolin 2.5 
SP Bob Hendley 1.85
SP Rob Herbel 1.9
SP Jack Sanford 1.7 
SP Gaylord Perry 5.05 
RP Jim Duffalo 1.4

-Mays goes over 10 WAR for the third straight season; this is now his best yet, the second best Giants season ever. And - he passes Mathewson in career WAR. Masanori Murakami becomes the first Japanese player in MLB history.
