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.
For a full explanation, click HERE
From October 10th ALCS:
Receiving 1 WOO’s
Alex Gordon got 3 hits including a broken bat 3 run double in the third and the go ahead home run in the 10th. He also made some fine defensive plays in the Royals 8-6 extra inning win in Baltimore.
Wade Davis kept the Orioles from scoring in the critical 8th and 9th innings. He faced the minimum 6 batters, striking out 4, allowing nobody to reach and struck out Cruz to end the 9th. He earned the decision in Kansas City’s 8-6 ten inning win.
Receiving 1/2 WOO’s
Ryan Flaherty got 3 hits, scored and drove in a pair with a 2 run, 2 out single in the 5th. The Orioles would come up just short as Kansas City won in 10, 8-6.

Okay, so at the MLB Reports, we have been tackling a different vantage point for the 2014 year. I saw a rising number of people who want to know about gambling.
There are several factors to acknowledge here.
It is illegal for most Americans to gamble (unless you are in a state that allows it like Las Vegas).
However, Canadians are allowed to wager freely under the ‘capital gains clause;.
Still, everyone has a friend in the Desert city of Las Vegas right? So we have been running with a theme.
I have had my main chief writer “Hunter Stokes” take a look at the odds all year. and surmise a game plan to throw some cabbage down on it.
If he couldn’t make it to Nevada (he flies there a lot, and goes about 1 per week) from Bakersfield, CA. It is only 286 Miles, and he likes to make the trek a lot.
But if he is unable to pry himself away from his tattoo parlor, I double down on my wagers for his picks. I am happy to have followed his selections all year. Read the rest of this entry

I am not going to preview this from an analyst angle because our “Lead Podcast Personality” Paul Francis Sullivan ‘AKA Sully’ does a brilliant 20 minute podcast that he does daily, and he has described this matchup beautifully.
I will post the podcast at the end of the article.
Instead, I am looking at this series as a professional handicapper sense.
I have to give the nod to the Giants for value on this one. If you go down the rosters, the St. Louis franchise is a smidge better on the talent level, however how can you bet against San Francisco when they have won 8 straight playoff series from 2010 – 2014.
The Giants have also won 4 of 5 games in this year’s playoff. Read the rest of this entry
