Hall of Merit: Negro League Win Share Estimates

This falls into the category of asking someone else to do something I’m too lazy to do . . .

Does anyone have a listing of the WS estimates for all of the Negro League players? I’d love to try to slot them onto the pennants added spreadsheet as best I can, at least including their estimated career WS . . .

Also, have the estimates been based on a 154 or 162 game season? Any help would be appreciated. A typical posting that looked something like this:

Biz Mackey, 154-game base

Year BWS    FWS  Total
1920 14.0   4.1   18.1
1921 12.4   5.1   17.5
1922 19.6   3.8   23.4
1923 18.9   6.8   25.7
1924 12.9   6.5   19.4
1925 10.6   6.1   16.7
1926 11.6   8.1   19.7
1927  9.8   8.2   18.0
1928 11.7   7.5   19.2
1929  6.1   8.8   14.9
1930 11.0   7.7   18.7
1931 10.6   6.5   17.1
1932   
1933  4.6   5.6   10.2
1934  2.5   2.4    4.9
1935  0.0   4.6    4.6
1936  0.4   5.0    5.4
1937  1.8   4.0    5.8
1938  1.2   3.1    4.3
1939  2.9   3.7    6.6
1940  1.5   2.3    3.8
1941  1.4   2.4    3.8
tot 165.5 112.3  277.8

Would be phenomenal. If we could gather as many of these in one place as possible for easy reference, that’d be great. Chris (and others), if you’d like to post your estimates here, that’d be great.

Basically it’d also be good to keep this thread fairly uncluttered with comments if possible too. Keeping it under 100 posts would be great for searching purposes.
