WHO OWNED OCTOBER (#WOO) – TALLIES UPDATED FOR NL DIVISION SERIES GAME 3 and AL DIVISION SERIES GAME 4, October 8, 2020

Karen Warren

The Padres. A’s and Marlins have all called it a season. All had thrilling memories of 2020, but came up short. The Astros made it to the ALCS. The NLCS is set while the Rays and Yankees have a Do or Die match up.

Who owned October on October 8?

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.
