Forever Giants:1994 San Francisco Giants Year 37 (112)

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

1993 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 parenthetical is a career Giants WAR total with the eventual goal of a top 100 Giants of all time. The record is pythagorean adjusted for 162 games.

1994 81-81
C Kirt Manwaring .6 
1B Todd Benzinger -1.05

SS Royce Clayton 2.6 
3B Matt Williams 5.7

-Back to a .500 pythag in the strike shortened season.  This is the year the third division was added to each league and the Wild Card was created.
