Who Owned October (#WOO) – Tallies Updated For AL Division Series Game 1 and NL Division Series Game 2, October 4, 2019

Jason Getz

Some old fashioned pitchers duels took place today. A pitcher who started the season so badly that he was sent to the minors dominated and a future Hall of Famer padded his resume.

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.
