Forever Giants:1969 San Francisco Giants Year 12 (87)

Monday, February 9, 2015

1968 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.

1969 89-73
C Dick Dietz 2.05 
1B Willie McCovey 7.75
2B Ron Hunt 3.85
SS Hal Lanier 1
3B Jim Davenport -.45 
LF Dave Marshall -.9
CF Willie Mays 2.4
RF Bobby Bonds 5.75 
OF Ken Henderson -.55
IF Dave Mason 0
LF Jim Ray Hart -.05 
C Jack Hiatt 1.9 
IF Tito Fuentes 1.1 
UT Bob Burda  -.1
3B Bobby Etheridge .1
C Bob Barton -1 
SP Gaylord Perry 6.05 
SP Juan Marichal 7.55 
SP Mike McCormick 2.45 
SP Bobby Bolin -.02 (15.4) Last season
SP Ray Sadecki  .2 
RP Frank Linzy  .6

-The leagues are broken up into divisions in Chub Feeney's last season as GM; Bonds has a 30/30 year; Mays, now 38, hits 140 career WAR; the Giants pythag record is over .500 every season since the move.  Bolin finishes up.
