Who Owned October (#WOO) – Tallies Updated For NL Division Series Game 1, October 3, 2019


TBS – Turner Sports

The Cardinals came from behind in a dramatic manner while the Dodgers took care of business methodically.

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 3
2019 NL Division Series Game 1:

Miles Mikolas held the Braves to 1 run over 5 innings. He did not get the decision but help set up the Cardinals 7-6 victory.
