Who Owned October (#WOO) – Tallies Updated For NLCS Game 4 and ALCS Game 3, October 15, 2019

IMG_8860

MLB Network

The Nationals leaned on their much maligned bullpen to clinch the pennant. Meanwhile one of the best pitchers in the game did NOT have his best stuff but won anyway.

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.
