Who Owned October (#WOO) – Tallies Updated For AL Wild Card Game, October 2, 2019

ESPN

Another year, another October of suffering in Oakland. Meanwhile Tampa Bay is moving on and will face a super tough Houston Astros team in the Division Series,

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 2
2019 AL Wild Card Game:

Receiving 1 WOO

Nick Anderson came out of the bullpen to strike out 4 Oakland batters in 1 1/3 shutout innings, throwing into the 9th, as the Rays took the Wild Card Game, 5-1.

Yandy Diaz led off the game with a homer, launched a second homer and added a third hit to lead the Rays past Oakland, 5-1.

 

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Jesus Luzardo kept the A’s in the game with 3 innings of 1 hit shutout ball, striking out 4 Rays. Oakland would drop the 5-1 final.

Jurickson Profar went 2 for 4 in the A’s 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay.
