Forever Giants:1999 San Francisco Giants Year 42 (117)

Monday, March 16, 2015

1998 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.

1999 85-77
C Brent Mayne 2.5
1B JT Snow 2.45 
2B Jeff Kent 3.7
SS Rich Aurilia 2.55
3B Bill Mueller 1.75 
LF Barry Bonds 4.2 
CF Marvin Benard 1.75 
RF Ellis Burks 3.35 
OF Stan Javier -.8
OF FP Santangelo 1.2
3B Charlie Hayes -1 
C Scott Servais 0
RF Armando Rios 1.8
2B Ramon Martinez .6
SP Russ Ortiz 2.65 
SP Shawn Estes .9
SP Kirk Rueter 0
SP Mark Gardner -1.3 
SP Chris Brock 0
RP John Johnstone 1.9

-Candlestick's final season.  (Small sample size alert) Things worked out better than when the football team would move out 15 years later.  Bonds misses two months and is still the Giants most valuable player, other than this injury shortened season and the strike season of '94, he had an MVP quality season every year of his Giants decade and hits the 2000s as the 8th greatest Giant of all time.
