Who Owned October (#WOO) Tallies Updated for NL Division Series Game 1 and AL Division Series Game 2 – October 8, 2021

John Hefti – AP

The Astros took control, the Red Sox flipped the script and the pitching for the Brewers and the Giants could not look better.

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.

From October 8, 2021 –
