Stephen Strasburg and Alex Bregman Owned the World Series – Final WOWS Tally for the 2019 World Series

No surprise that Stephen Strasburg had the highest pitching WOWS total. He won the Series MVP after all. But it might come as a shock to see Bregman, and his .207 average, owning it as a hitter.

Well lots of hitters had shining moments and it stopped any one from piling up a big total. In the end, a bunch of key homers put Bregman over the top.

Both Strasburg and Bregman finished with 2 WOWS. Juan Soto and Anthony Rendon tied for second with 1 1/2 among hitters. No pitcher other than Strasburg had higher than 1 WOWS.

Each winning team for every World Series 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.

But the World Series deserves its own stats. WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)
