Every San Francisco Giants Team Ranked by Pythagorean Record

Monday, October 17, 2016

Updated through 2016



Here's every regular season team in SFG history ranked by pythagorean record, normalized for a 162 game season.  I've included what happened to each of the teams which made the postseason, and included the best position player and pitcher on each team, as determined by regular season WARP (Davenport version) plus WAR (baseball-reference version).  Ranking is regular season only.


  1. 1962 100 Lost WS to Yankees Best WAR+WARP position player/pitcher Mays 10.3 Marichal 3.3, Sanford 3.3.  Yup, the best team in SFG history wasn't the WS Champion, it was the first WS loser, the '62 team.  
  2. 2002 98 Lost WS to Angels Bonds 12.35, Nen 3.65.  8 outs away and a 5 run lead. 
  3. 1993 98 Bonds 11.5, Swift 4.5 103 regular season wins and didn't make the playoffs.
  4. 2000 97 Lost in playoffs to Mets Kent 8.55, Hernandez 3.2. The missing great SFG team of recent vintage, the best regular season team in 2000, and bounced in the NLDS.
  5. 2010 94 World Champions defeated Rangers Huff 6 Wilson 4.65. Your First Ever World Champion San Francisco Giants
  6. 1987 93 Lost in NLCS to Cardinals Clark 4.75, Robinson 2.3. A wide open postseason in '87, the Twins are the worst WS winners in baseball history.
