Madison Bumgarner‘s complete game shutout tonight was obviously worth his title of Owning October and the World Series tonight. But it did more than that.
His 5 1/2 WOO (Who Owns October) total for the post season can not be passed. With only 2 games left, nobody can pass Bumgarner. Hunter Pence, Lorenzo Cain and Yusmeiro Petit all have a total of 3. Even if they pick up a WOO the last 2 games, they can not pass Bumgarner.
So October 2014 is officially owned by Madison Bumgarner. Savor this amazing post season.
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.
When it comes to the World Series, I do a separate tally: WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)
It is important to separate Postseason and World Series accomplishments. It is the purist in me.

From October 26th World Series Game 5:
Receiving 1 WOO’s and WOWS
Madison Bumgarner continued his October dominance with his second complete game shutout of the month and second win of the series. He allowed just 4 Kansas City hits, walked, none and struck out 8, giving the Giants a 5-0 victory.
Brandon Crawford got 2 hits and drove in 3 runs, leading the Giants offense to beat the Royals 5-0.
Receiving 1/2 WOO’s and WOWS
James Shields kept the Royals in the game with 6 solid innings, working out of jams and let up just 2 runs. He would be the hard luck loser to the Giants 5-0.
Last night’s game was so strange that I feel like we saw 3 different games.
It was like a Tarantino film. I am not convinced it was shown in chronological order.
It is the Game 4 of the World Series episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Yusmeiro Petit, Hunter Pence and Salvador Perez all owned October and the World Series last night.
