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.)
