Forever Giants: 2015 San Francisco Giants Year 59 (Franchise Year 134) (And The Top 100 Giants by WAR of All Time)

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

2015 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. The record is pythagorean adjusted for 162 games.

2016 (90-72)
C Buster Posey 5.6 (37.8)
1B Brandon Belt 4.8 (18.85)
2B Joe Panik 1.6 (7.05)
SS Brandon Crawford 4.15 (19)
3B Matt Duffy 1.1 (5.65)
LF Angel Pagan 2.25 (7.5)
CF Denard Span .6 
RF Hunter Pence 2.25 (14.1)
OF Gregor Blanco -.8 (5.55)
3B Conor Gillaspie .85 (.45)
3B Eduardo Nunez 1
C Trevor Brown -.1
OF Jarrett Parker .45 (1.05)
OF Mac Williamson .45
2B Kelby Tomlinson .6 (1.7)

SP Madison Bumgarner 6.15 (30.1)
SP Johnny Cueto 5.6 
SP Jeff Samardzija 3
SP Jake Peavy -.7 (2.8)
SP Matt Cain -.75 (33.15)
SP Albert Suarez .7
SP Matt Moore .8
RP Derek Law 1.7
RP Hunter Strickland 1.25 (2.65)
RP Santiago Casilla 1.2 (13.6)
RP Sergio Romo .75 (13.35)
RP Javier Lopez .2 (6.75)

-One of the best teams in the first half, one of the worst in the second, it all came out on the wash as the Giants made (and won) the Wild Card game and then lost the NLDS in four games to the Cubs.  With a 90 win pythag+postseason appearance this is the 14th best regular season club in San Francisco history. Bumgarner cracks 30 career WAR, Posey nears 40 as both climb the all time franchise list below.  Probably, the Giants say goodbye to Pagan and at least a couple of the three remaining relievers with 3 World Series rings (Casilla/Romo/Lopez).  Starting third baseman Matt Duffy is also gone, dealt at mid-season for Matt Moore.
