Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)
And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOWS to a worthy player on the losing team.

From October 26th’s game:
Receiving 1 WOWS:
Matt Holliday went 2-5 and drove in 3 of the Cardinals 5 runs and scored another as they topped Boston in an bizarre 5-4 win in Game 3.
Trevor Rosenthal let up a seeing eye hit and little else, striking out 2 in 1 2/3 innings and earning the 5-4 victory for the Cardinals.
Receiving 1/2 WOWS:
Xander Bogaerts tripled and scored the Red Sox first run and tied the game in the 8th giving Boston fleeting hope in their 5-4 loss to St. Louis.
Felix Doubront gave the Red Sox 2 critical innings of shutout ball, getting the game tied into the 7th inning. It wasn’t enough as St. Louis won 5-4.
