I need to do a little catch up for “Who Owns October?” AKA WOO.
It is the post season answer to Who Owns Baseball? which I did the entire regular season.

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO.
And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO to a worthy player on the losing team.

For a full explanation, click HERE.

Now that I figured it out, I need to get up to date and figure out the WOOs through the Wild Card Games and each Division Series 2 games in, and from now on I’ll update the new names daily.
