Who Owns October In MLB Playoffs 2016? (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 6, 2016
Have you noticed that Marco Estrada is putting together a terrific October resume? I thought Cole Hamels was going to be a playoff hero. Nope. Turns out a new hero is emerging. And suddenly my pick to win the World Series could be on their heels.
Meanwhile Jason Kipnis wants to be beloved in Cleveland and Terry Francona showed how a bullpen is handed.
Time to see who owned October.
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.
At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter.
A complete description of the rules can be found HERE.
From October 6th. AL Division Series Game 1:
