WHO OWNED OCTOBER (#WOO) – TALLIES UPDATED FOR NL DIVISION SERIES GAME 1 and AL DIVISION SERIES GAME 2, October 6 , 2020

MLB Network

The A’s and Marlins stumbled. The Astros, Braves and Dodgers brought the lumber. The Rays held on and the Padres had dreams of a no hitter.

Who owned October on October 6?

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.
