2. Bill Terry (1923-1936)

Wins Above Replacement: 54.2

Terry played all 14 seasons of his career with the Giants. The Hall of Famer earned MVP votes in seven different seasons, finishing as high as third in both 1929 and 1931. He went to the All-Star game three straight seasons from 1933-1935. Unfortunately, his best season was in 1930 despite there being no MVP award in 1930. The Sporting News, which attempted to fill the MVP void, announced its own selection of Terry as the Most Valuable Player for the National League. He earned a WAR of 7.1 and finished that season with an unbelievable slashline of .401/.452/.619 for an OPS of 1.071.

Overall, he played 1721 career games at first base in New York and had a career slashline of .341/.393/.506 for an OPS of .899.
