Number 2: Frankie Frisch, (1919-1926), 37.8 WAR
Frisch played exactly 1000 games for the New York Giants, and accumulated a size-able WAR in 8 seasons. Frisch’s 1300+ hits and 224 stolen bases over his eight years gave him a fantastic career with the Giants.
He only got better when he went to play for the Cardinals. Frisch was third on the MVP ballot in 1924, and ninth the following season. He eventually won it in St. Louis. He had 419 career stolen bases, 466 doubles, and 2880 hits over his hall of fame career.
His career WAR? A whopping 70.4. Frisch was good, but one was better, and actually preceded Frisch in his time with the New York Giants.
