Forever Giants: 2008 San Francisco Giants Year 51 (126)

Thursday, March 26, 2015

2007 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.

2008 68-94
C Bengie Molina 3.05  
1B John Bowker -.45
2B Ray Durham 1.15 (12.2) Last Season
SS Omar Vizquel -.65
3B Jose Castillo -.3
LF Fred Lewis 1.3
CF Aaron Rowand 1.3
RF Randy Winn 4.3 
SS Rich Aurilia -.2 
2B Eugenio Velez -.75
MI Emmanuel Burriss .35
3B Pablo Sandoval 1.1
SS Ivan Ochoa -.8
LF Dave Roberts .05
SP Tim Lincecum 8.2 MVPQ 
SP Matt Cain 4.75 
SP Barry Zito -.1  
SP Jonathan Sanchez 1.05
SP Kevin Correia -1

-After 3 straight pythags in the 70s...we drop into the 60s.  Lincecum has an MVPQ season; Vizquel breaks the record for games at short and Pablo Sandoval/Sergio Romo join the club. Durham wraps up.
