WHO OWNED OCTOBER (#WOO) – TALLIES UPDATED FOR AL WILD CARD SERIES GAME 3 and NL WILD CARD SERIES GAME 2, October 1 , 2020

Robert Gauthier / Los Angeles Times

The Braves, A’s and Dodgers are moving on…

The Padres rose from the dead.

Who owned October on the last day of September?

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.

From October 1, 2020 –
