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.

-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.

-The 50th San Francisco season; the 125th season of Giants baseball.  It's our third straight pythag in the 70s, first time in 30 years.  Barry Zito and Tim Lincecum join the rotation - and Barry Bonds breaks Hank Aaron's record, finishing his career with 762 home runs and moves onto the Forever list, even in his final season, he's still the Giants best position player.

-Another sub 80 pythag; 41 year old Bonds is the Giants best position player and passes Mays as the most valuable San Francisco Giant ever; he won't catch him for overall WAR, he does catch Babe Ruth, moving to #2 in career homers. Felipe Alou fired at season's end, replaced by Bruce Bochy.  Jason Schmidt finishes up and moves to the Forever list. Sanchez and Wilson join Cain on the squad.

-Timber.  Worst club since '96 as Bonds only plays in 14 games, that's still enough to catch Mays for San Francisco WAR.  The Giants win their 10,000th game in July.  The next generation of Giants becomes visible when Matt Cain joins the staff.
