Who Owned October (#WOO) Tallies Updated for ALCS Game 2 and NLCS Game 1 – October 16, 2021

MLB on TBS

The Red Sox offense could not stop hitting slams. Meanwhile the Braves opened the NLCS at home against the champs and walked off winners.

Who owned October on October 16?

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO(Who Owns October.)

And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO’S to a worthy player on the losing team.

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

At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter. The WOWS total will be kept separately. Each game now counts towards both tallies.

A complete description of the rules can be found HERE.
