Well… the season has begun. And that means it is time once again to determine who owns baseball.

For an explanation of how WOB works, click here.

Earning Full WOBs:

Gerrit Cole pitched all 5 innings in his Yankee debut, allowing only a first inning homer and a walk to beat the Nationals, 4-1.

Kiké Hernández went 4 for 5 with a homer, 2 runs scored and 5 runs driven in to help the Dodgers pop the Giants, 8-1.

Adam Kolarek recorded 5 outs in hitless relief, striking out 2 San Francisco batters to earn the 8-1 decision for Los Anageles.

Giancarlo Stanton kicked off the scoring for the season with a 2 run first inning homer. He collected a second hit and powered the Yankees past the Champion Nationals, 4-1 in a rain shortened 6 inning game.

Earning 1/2 WOBs:

Adam Eaton hit a first inning homer that provided all the Washington offense in their 4-1 loss to the Yankees.

Max Scherzer struck out 11 Yankees in 5 1/3 innings but also allowed a few key hits including a 2 run homer as the Nationals fell, 4-1.

Giancarlo Stanton will get his hits. Don’t worry about him. Yankee fans should be concerned about their pitching depth for this season.

Meanwhile the Reds were right to fire Bryan Price but they should have done it nearly 2 years ago.
